Federal court bars New Iberia woman and her business

A federal court has barred a New Iberia woman and her business from preparing federal tax returns.

A civil injunction was issued against Joyce Bougere-Keyes. The government’s complaint alleged Bougere-Keyes, and her business, Joyce Tax and Financial Service LLC, prepared federal income tax returns for customers that reported fabricated and/or inflated business income and expenses.

The IRS audited 71 federal income tax returns, which resulted in the disallowance of more than 200,000 dollars in improperly claimed earned income tax credits.
