A Las Vegas man was indicted for conspiracy to defraud the IRS.
According to court records, Lance K. Bradford conspired with others to prepare tax returns on behalf of several automotive collision centers falsely claiming that the centers and their owners incurred millions in deductible expenses.
From 2013 through 2015, these false returns allegedly claimed more than $11 million in false deductions, resulting in significant underreporting of business income and taxes due to the IRS. If convicted, Bradford faces up to five years in prison for the conspiracy charge and up to three years in prison for each of 29 counts of aiding and assisting the filing of a false tax return.
