To EITC Tax Fraud in The Bronx Cinthia Federo Pled Not Guilty in May Now Guilty in January

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 3 – Cinthia Federo worked in a tax preparation business in The Bronx and was charged with fraud involving the Earned Income Tax Credit program.

In May 2019 along with co-defendants she pleaded not guilty, as reported here by Inner City Press on May 17. 

 On January 30, 2020 she appeared again, this time to plead guilty, before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Sidney H. Stein. She agreed not to appeal or otherwise challenge any sentence below 41 months, and to file corrected tax returns.    

One hiccup in the guilty plea allocution came as to the possible re-payment of up to $2 million dollars. Judge Stein emphasized that there was no way to know what the number would be. Things proceeded, and the plea was accepted. The case is US v. Federo, 18-cr-879 (Stein).
