Inglewood-based tax preparer was sentenced Monday to 63 months behind bars for defrauding the IRS

An ex-California Franchise Tax Board employee turned Inglewood-based tax preparer was sentenced Monday to 63 months behind bars for defrauding the IRS out of millions of dollars by declaring bogus withholdings to fraudulently claim refunds of more than $5 million. Cubby Wayne Williams, 64, of Alhambra, was also ordered to pay more than $492,600 in fines and restitution, and serve one year on supervised release following his prison term, according to Assistant U.S. Attorney Ranee Katzenstein.

Williams was found guilty in October of 22 counts of assisting in the preparation of false tax returns for his clients and four counts of subscribing to false tax returns for himself.
