Dallas man pleads guilty in false tax return scheme

POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) - A 38-year-old Dallas man has pleaded guilty to federal charges that he conspired to falsify income tax returns for Idaho State University students.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says Moses Mukuka pleaded guilty Wednesday in Pocatello to conspiracy to file false claims for a refund and making a false claim against the United States. Sentencing is set for Feb. 13.

Prosecutors alleged Mukuka entered into an agreement with another person to place flyers around the ISU campus advertising himself as an accounting student who would do income tax returns for $10.

Mukuka sent the students' paperwork to another individual who submitted returns to the IRS with false information designed to increase the refund.

Mukuka distributed a small portion of the refund to the taxpayers and wouldn't provide them with copies of their returns.
