Six Ways Your Tax Preparer Knows You're Lying

Jesus of Nazareth told His followers during the height of the Roman Empire to render unto Caesar the taxes that were levied upon them.

As a professional tax preparer for a major national service, one of my jobs is to recognize when a filer may be giving me fraudulent information. Although it’s not possible to catch all the bogus information, there is a list of common dodges that dishonest filers attempt to pull to reduce or avoid their tax bill.
