Milwaukee, Wisconsin - On Tuesday, United We Stay (UWS), a Chicago and Michigan based non-profit organization filed an initial complaint against MC Multiservicios for tax refund fraud with the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation Division in Fresno, California, according to Luis Urdaneta, the Community Lead Organizer from the UWS-Chicago. Currently, numerous victims have come forward who discovered their original 2010 federal tax filings for 2009 tax refunds that were prepared by MC Multiservicios, a tax service preparer, 1010 S. Cesar E. Chavez Drive had discrepancies when they asked for copies of the original tax refund filings from the IRS in 2011 and 2012. The actual tax refund kept from the victims by MC Multiservicios range between $155.00 to $435.00 from each taxpayer, Urdaneta confirmed.
MC Multiservicios has their main office in Milwaukee and another in Waukesha.
Urdaneta says, his organization has filed a complaint for each taxpayer who was victimized by MC Multiservicios with the IRS and will be seeking the help of other community organizations "to form a local coalition to move forward with this issue." The coalition in the Milwaukee area will inform the public about the allegations made against MC Multiservicios and will be seeking those taxpayers who had their tax refunds prepared at MC Multiservicios to meet with the coalition to see, if they were taxpayer victims as well.
