IRS investigates Integrity Tax in Hattiesburg


For weeks, Seven On Your Side has been hearing from people who say they are displeased with the service of Integrity Tax in Hattiesburg.

Last week we shared a story of a man, William Beverly, who only made around $3,800 in 2012. Beverly said after Integrity Tax finished filing his taxes he was going to get a refund back for roughly the same amount. However, Beverly said much of the information on his tax forms were made up, and totally different from what was on his W-2.

"I never signed for my taxes to be filed," said Beverly. "I only provided Integrity Tax with a W2 form and my I.D."

According to IRS officials and tax experts, if someone is caught putting false information on their taxes both the tax-payer and the tax-payer can be held responsible.

The IRS is well aware of the reports against Integrity Tax. They say each report will be handled on a case by case basis.

IRS officials said if any paperwork was signed by the customer, both parties can be held responsible for misinformation found on federal forms.
