NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A tax preparer has been indicted for filing false statements on tax returns and three counts of aggravated identity theft.

U.S. Attorney Kenneth A. Polite (poh-LEET’s), in a news release Thursday, said Christie Robinson, of LaPlace, was charged in a four-count indictment.

Robinson is the owner and operator of CRR Services, LLC in Kenner. Polite says Robinson failed to include $471,000 in fees she received for four tax years - 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2011. She’s also accused of electronically filing three tax returns using individuals’ names, birthdates and Social Security numbers without their permission.

If convicted, Robinson faces up to two years on each identity theft count consecutive to any sentence she would get on the tax count. She also faces a $250,000 fine and restitution to the victims.
