The Connecticut man had previously been convicted of tax crimes and barred from filing tax returns for others.
In Connecticut, a methamphetamine investigation led to a tax case.
According to court records, law enforcement agents executed a search warrant at the home of Eugene Carlin, 59, of Middletown, Connecticut, and seized approximately 170 grams of d-methamphetamine hydrochloride of very high purity. Carlin admitted that he worked with others to distribute methamphetamine.
But the drug investigation subsequently revealed that Carlin helped clients prepare and file false tax returns with the IRS. And he had a history of this as well. In 2007, Carlin was convicted of tax evasion and aiding in the preparation of false tax returns. As part of his sentence then, he was barred from preparing tax returns for others.
In the most recent case, after pleading guilty to drug and tax charges, Carlin was sentenced to 18 months in prison.
