Trial Settlement

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – An Alabama tax preparer has pleaded guilty to filing false returns on behalf of his clients and himself. U.S. Attorney Prim Escalona said 27-year-old Jamichael D. Whiteside, of Gadsden, entered the guilty plea Thursday in federal court.

Al.com reports Whiteside entered the plea to one count of aiding or assisting in the preparation of a false tax return and making and subscribing a false tax return before U.S. District Judge R. David Proctor.

Escalona’s office said Whiteside’s false returns resulted in a tax loss of more than $140,000. A sentencing date has not been announced.
