2 Toledoans charged in alleged tax-fraud scheme


Two Toledo woman face federal charges for allegedly conspiring to falsify tax forms that resulted in $134,000 in fraudulent refunds over a period of three years.

Wanda Love, 57, and Sonya Moses, 40, were charged in U.S. District Court in Toledo with conspiracy in the preparation of false tax returns, an indictment filed Wednesday alleges. Ms. Love also is charged with 59 counts of helping to prepare false tax returns.

Court records show Ms. Love was a tax return preparer for H&R Block in Toledo. During that time, the indictment says, Ms. Moses would "recruit and refer individuals to have their tax returns prepared by Love in order to fraudulently obtain tax refund."

The alleged conspiracy occurred from 2007-09, during which time Ms. Love is charged with preparing and filing 59 false returns, resulting in fraudulent payouts of about $134,000.
