Glendale tax preparer Huy Phuoc Nguyen will serve 21 months in a federal prison for filing fraudulent returns on behalf of his clients and trying to blame the crime on his ex-wife.

Nguyen served members of the local Vietnamese community from 2001 to 2005 through his home business, Lucky Immigration and Income Tax Service. Some of his customers seemed to qualify for every tax credit in the books -- how lucky!
