NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A LaVergne woman is charged with 28 counts related to false federal income tax returns.

According to the U.S. attorney’s office in Nashville, Michelle Theus is accused of helping prepare at least 26 false tax returns for other people between January 2009 and February 2012. The returns included false dependents, false education credits and false child care credits, among other things.

She also is accused of filing false 2009 and 2010 tax returns for herself that substantially underreported her income.

Theus was indicted by a federal grand jury in Nashville on Wednesday. If convicted, she faces up to three years in prison and a $250,000 fine for each count.

No number was listed for Theus in the phone directory.
