In a statement, a special agent of Internal Revenue Service’s Criminal Investigation department Mr. Jonathan D. Larsen said that the accusations in the condemnation against Ms Noemi Pender should be an eye opener for the taxpayers on how important it is to choose an ethical and reputable tax practitioner.
