U.S. District Judge Thomas Anderson has ordered three tax preparers with ties to the Mo’ Money tax refund scandal from working as tax preparers or having anything to do with the preparation and filing of federal tax returns in any way.

Anderson approved the civil injuction Monday, Dec. 22, against Shandon Allen, Shewanda Hamilton and Tabitha Tunstall based on a request by U.S. Attorney Ed Stanton.

Allen, Hamilton and Tunstall had each managed locations of the Mo’ Money tax businesses before a 2013 federal court action alleging widespread fraud in the preparation of the tax forms and handling of the refunds led to a court order banning the compnay and its owners from tax preparation.

The three defendants have 15 days from the court order to provide the court a list with contact information of anyone for whom they and their companies prepared federal tax returns from the 2008 tax year to the present. They also have 15 days to provide the court with a list of all employees, independent contractors, managers and others who worked for them in any way.
