Previous Coverage:

In 2013, WDAM 7 News did multiple stories on Integrity Tax and discovered that the business was operating without a license in the city of Hattiesburg. 

On April 4, 2013, in a phone call between WDAM 7 News and Jackson, he denied lying on his tax forms to get his customers more money and that he had never broken any law, and that he has always been available and there for his customers.

A written statement from Integrity Tax in 2013 stated:

“Integrity Tax has closed its Hattiesburg location due to an ongoing dispute with the city of Hattiesburg Code Enforcement Division regarding our business license. If you are entitled to a refund, we will be sending out refund checks via certified mail, as soon as your refunds are processed and received by us.”

At that point, WDAM 7 News was informed about the federal investigation into the tax claims.
