Fraudulent taxes filed on behalf of Lubbock residents, woman admits

A Lubbock woman, Susan Tijerina Gloria, admitted to tax fraud on Thursday, "... which resulted in a loss to the United States of America in the amount of $194,966." Gloria will be sentenced at a later date to no more than three years in prison.
Federal records say Gloria was employed by Z & Z Bookkeeping & Tax Service from Feb 11 2008 through April 15, 2010. 
"Gloria did willfully aid and assist in the preparation of fraudulent and false U.S. Individual Income Tax Returns... "  Court  records also say the false returns were meant to maximize the Earned Income Credit.
However, the customers of Z & Z did not get these refunds, at least not in their entirety.  Refund checks were sent to Z&Z,  cashed at a pawn shop.  Only a portion of the refund had been made available to customers in the form of a refund  anticipation loan.
Court records say false income was reported from Zavala Environmental Services, which is co-owned by the same person who  operates Z & Z.    

Federal agents seized records from Z & Z back in April of 2010.
