SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Authorities say a Spokane accountant has pleaded guilty to three counts of filing false corporate tax returns, understating gross receipts for his business by approximately $1.8 million.

The U.S. Justice Department says 53-year-old Roger Stadtmueller pleaded guilty Tuesday and admitted to owning a company called Zazz, under which he provided accounting services including income tax preparation, bookkeeping and financial audits.

The department says Stadtmueller admitted making false and fraudulent corporate tax returns for Zazz for the calendar years 2006, 2007 and 2008.

Stadtmueller faces a three-year prison sentence and financial penalties. He also agreed to pay $400,000 in restitution to the Internal Revenue Service.
