BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) — A southern Kentucky federal income tax preparer has pleaded guilty to aiding and assisting in the preparing of false income tax returns.

Greg P. Denham of Glasgow entered the plea Monday before U.S. District Judge Joseph H. McKinley in federal court in Bowling Green. The 47-year-old Denham admitted to 35 counts charging that between February 2006 and May 2009 he prepared income tax returns for other people that misrepresented or under-reported taxes owed by other people. The indictment alleged that the returns in question claimed business expenses that Denham knew the taxpayers did not actually incur, or that were not actual business expenses.

Denham faces a maximum of three years in prison when he's sentenced Feb. 14 in Bowling Green.
