Bristol Woman Sentenced Two Years For Tax Fraud Charges

A Bristol woman has been sentenced to 24 months in prison after pleading guilty to tax fraud related charges. 36 year-old Marie Henderson was the sole owner and employee of Four Seasons Finance, a tax return preparation business which she operated out of her home in Bristol. Federal prosecutors say the 1040 returns she prepared for many of her clients contained false deduction information, such as false business income, business mileage, and/or false car and truck expenses. In one instance, she got a retired couple an extra five-thousand dollars through false deductions. Besides the prison time, Henderson is also sentenced to 1 year of supervised release and has to pay nearly $100,000 in restitution.
