IRS raids Nashville notario in criminal investigation

The Nashville Business Journal reports that Ceja Enterprises, a "notario" business, has been raided and is under a criminal investigation by the Internal Revenue Service.

"Internal Revenue Service criminal investigation agents raided Ceja Enterprises on Nolensville Pike on April 13 and confiscated documents."

"The criminal investigation division investigates potential violations of Internal Revenue laws and related offenses. The division investigates allegations ranging from tax evasion to the aiding of false tax preparations. Pollard declined to say whether this is the first time either the Ceja Enterprises or its owner has been investigated."

"Ceja Enterprises was founded by Carmen Ceja in 1996 and provides a variety of services to the Hispanic community. Based on the company's advertisements, Ceja helps with clients' immigration process, provides financial advice, bookkeeping service for businesses and individuals, and handles tax preparation."

"The IRS investigation adds to recent attention from the Tennessee Bar Association, which is discussing options for legislation - or an amendment to a law - aimed at limiting the use of 'notario publico' in advertisements by Ceja Enterprises and several other businesses."
