JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

A 31-year-old Jacksonville woman has been indicted on tax fraud charges.

Fuada Delic, who owned a tax preparation business called Delica's Tax Service, is charged with two counts of filing fraudulent tax returns on her own behalf and 41 counts of filing fraudulent tax returns on behalf of her business customers.

If convicted, Delic faces up to three years in prison per count.

According to the indictment, on or about April 14, 2009, and September 28, 2010, Delic filed personal tax returns in which she underreported the income that she received from the tax preparation business.

The indictment also alleges that Delic filed tax returns for customers in which she falsely claimed, among other things, that they had incurred educational expenses, tax credits, and charitable contributions for which they were entitled to tax deductions.

The filed returns span the 2008, 2009 and 2010 tax years.
