ANTIOCH -- An Antioch man pleaded guilty Friday to conspiring to file false tax returns, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
Beginning in January 2011, ¿Khyber Law helped to file several tax returns with the IRS that were false and fraudulent, according to a statement released by U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag. Law admitted that the tax returns were false because the filings included fictitious W-2 forms that inflated individuals' wages.
The filings included a tax return filed in Law's name that falsely reported he was employed at a staffing agency, according to the statement. Law also admitted to filing false tax returns without showing the fraudulent tax return to the purported filer. Law helped file the false returns from his residence and from other locations.
The maximum penalty for conspiracy to file false claims is ten years in prison and a fine of $250,000.
Law is scheduled to be sentenced on Aug. 22 in Oakland.
