WASHINGTON (WCIV) -- The United States Department of Justice asked the Charleston federal court to bar a Summerville woman from preparing federal income tax returns.

According to a statement from the justice department, Jessica Geddis has been preparing tax returns from her home and fictitiously reporting other income.

The justice department also alleges that Geddis instructed the IRS to deposit the refunds into her bank account. In all, investigators have determined more than $280,000 in fraudulent checks have been deposited between January 2008 and May 2012.

There were a total of 148 fraudulent checks, investigators said.
