Should James Moss Be Going to Prison for What His Employees Did to the IRS?


We recommend you take a listen to this interview on RMG radio on the case of James Moss.  James is a business owner who hired employees do taxes for consumers.  Moss had a group of rogue employees who were stealing social security numbers and fake drivers licenses so that they could file false tax returns.  We’re not quit sure how they did it, but they got it done, all to the tune of stealing $500,000 from the IRS over a period of time:  The tax refunds would come in and they would split the money among themselves and with an outside party.

You know how the IRS works; they eventually figure out if you’re stealing their money, just ask any rapper or celebrity out there with serious tax problems.  We also know that you are likely going to get more time for stealing from the IRS than you are for killing someone in this country.  So, the feds came after everyone involved, including the owner, James Moss.

The interesting thing about the case is that the IRS is seeking to send the owner of the business, Moss, to prison for 15 years.  Moss has cooperated fully with the authorities from the moment he found out that there was a problem, even providing video surveillance showing one of his employees putting a tax return in her purse behind her back.  Moss says that the minute he found out what his employees were doing, they were fired.

Moss gives a very revealing interview about the situation, making it clear that he had no idea that his employees were stealing from the IRS.  He and his supporters do not understand why he received so much time in prison, and it appears that a deeper understanding of his situation might be called for.

Listen to the interview on RMG radio yourself and make a determination as to whether or not you believe he received justice in this case.  Moss is set to be sentenced this week.

  1. I beleive that the business owner is civilally responsibile to the injured clients but criminally, no. The civil responsibility of a business owner is to ensure the proper checks and balances are in place to protect the public from criminal fraud and theft. If the business owner did not participate in the collection and use of this client data, if the business owner had no knowledge of the acts being done, then how can he be held criminally responsible? He should be sued but not jailed. He has insurance to cover his business or he should and this will help offset his civil liability.

  2. As a tax professional, I find it hard to believe the Mr. Moss had no idea what was going on in his business. If he was using professional commercial tax software, he should have had access and knowledge of all tax return processed on his software. It is his responsible as the business owner to check, if not every day, at least once a week for such activity. Fraudulent income tax fraud of this cert is an industry wide known problem and he should have been aware of what was happening in all of his office location. As a tax professional business owner it is his responsibility to do his due diligent to look for things such as this. He should have had controls in place to help prevent such activities or he should have caught it on the first one.

  3. If it can be proven that the owner had no knowledge he should not have to go to jail period . People do what they want we not in control of nobody but your children and even they go and do crazy stuff. Example look at the guy who shot all those people in Colorado. His parent should be held accountable? He’ll no. The business owner needs to be set free.

  4. This brother is innocent!!! They probably used some illegal aliens to ‘trap’ this brother!

    The majority of caucasoids DO NOT want to see a successful Black man, especially in Alabama, the most racist state in the country!!!

    They only time the media and caucasoids LOVE to see Black people is when we’re in jail, going to jail, dealing drugs, chains around their wrist and ankles and with their pants hanging down their asses!

    IT’S AMAZING HOW THIS RACIT ILLEGAL SYSTEM, STILL ‘HANGS’ INNOCENT BLACK MEN, EVEN WHEN LEGIT!

  5. Its weird but what happen to the internal accounting controls? “Internal controls of accounting are an essential business function for a growth-oriented organization, and include the elements of risk assessment, information communications and even employees’ roles and responsibilities. Internal controls of accounting systems are designed to protect a company from fraud, abuse and inaccurate data recording and help organizations keep track of essential financial activities.”
