Unprecedented: Arizona Justice Department Sues Golden Heart Tax Services for Fraudulent Tax Preparation, Seeks to Dismantle Business

Legal action sought to stop Arizona tax business for committing fraud

In Arizona, the Justice Department has filed a permanent injunction against Golden Heart Tax Services and its tax preparers for alleged fraudulent activity. The request aims to dismantle the business and prevent its defendants from owning or operating a tax preparation business or preparing tax returns. Additionally, the complaint seeks a court order for the defendants to return any preparation fees earned by allegedly preparing fraudulent or false tax returns.

The defendants named in the injunction include Mayuen Ajak, Yier Deng, Bol Guot, and Gabriel Kuot, along with Golden Heart Tax Services LLC. The business is currently operating in Arizona, Texas, Missouri, and Nebraska, with its founding taking place in Texas in 2018.

According to the complaint, the defendants are accused of falsely preparing tax returns to increase customer refunds and profiting through undisclosed preparation fees. They are alleged to have claimed false fuel, COVID-related, education, and earned income tax credits as well as fabricating business-related incomes. Many of their clients are immigrants who have little knowledge of US tax laws and are targeted by the defendants for their services.

The IRS estimates that approximately $10 million was lost due to the defendants’ alleged misconduct which resulted in underreported income or unpaid taxes. To help taxpayers avoid unethical tax preparers, the IRS has provided information on its website on how to select a reputable tax return preparer and offers a directory of approved providers.
