Tax Law (Questions About Taxes)/truck driver


hi..i know someone who is a long distance trucker. now he tells me that he may be getting about 10 grand for a tax refund. the whole thing is very complicated. he claims that a tax place in colorado is doing his taxes, and his wife says the tax place is backed up by a month. my question is, could this be true or just made up stuff? these people are know to blow things out of proportion and come up with un-true stories. so, i was just wondering if this could really be the truth. thank you!

Hi James, it would be impossible to say if your friend had an accurate return and non-fraudulent return prepared. However, if the tax place is backed up with truckers all getting large refunds, it is likely too good to be true. Often, the IRS catches up with these schemes. Unfortunately when that happens not only is the tax place punished (usually jail term), but the taxpayers are also punished (with significant tax debts, penalties, interest on the inflated refunds).

Best regards,
