A 53-year-old Rock Springs certified public accountant is facing up to three years in federal prison after pleading guilty to aiding or assisting in the preparation of a false document filed with the IRS, the U.S. Attorney's Office announced Tuesday.
Charging documents say Paul Edman on or about April 15, 2015, willfully counseled taxpayers in the preparation of a Form 1040 for calendar year 2014 knowing the form was false.
In addition to the possible three-year sentence, Edman is facing up to one year of supervised release and a fine of up to $100,000.
Edman is scheduled to be sentenced on June 1.
