According to the complaint, Ramos owned and operated Almonte Tax and allegedly filed false forms with the IRS claiming that he paid the clients to work for him when, in fact, he had never employed them. He then allegedly claimed the bogus wages as business expenses on his own personal returns, illegally reducing his own taxes. He also allegedly told two clients to lie if they were asked about the false wages.
Ramos faces a maximum of three years in prison, one year of supervised release and a fine of $250,000 for each count.
