Nashville tax preparer Robin Jackson, has been indicted by the Davidson County Grand Jury on two counts of identity theft, and one count of forgery, after she is alleged to have stolen the identities of two people, and used them to issue and cash a check from one to the other, which she posed as to keep the money.
A grand jury indictment, a copy of which is below, alleges that Robin Jackson (also known as Darryl Jackson in many court records), stole the identities of two individuals, ‘Peggy’ and ‘Connie’. She then wrote a check drawn on the account of ‘Peggy’, made out to ‘Connie’ in the amount of $1500.00, with the intent to defraud the bank it was written on, Fifth Third Bank.
Robin Jackson advertises on social media, and in photographs, the tax preparation service she works for as ‘In & Out Tax Services, LLC., however the State of Tennessee confirms that no such business is legally registered. According to the page used to book an appointment with her, the office is located at 2022 Clarksville Pike in North Nashville. An IRS representative tells Scoop: Nashville as many as 185 already submitted returns may be subjected to additional scrutiny from this office after learning of the past and current criminal charges of Jackson, as well as another preparer at the location. It was also learned that another tax preparer in the same office is alleged to have used the Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN) of another person to submit returns to the IRS, as their criminal history would have also precluded them from being issued one by the IRS.
Jackson, whose name still appears as ‘Darryl Jackson’ in most court systems, was granted a name change petition in June of 2017. Under the prior name, there is a long list of criminal convictions including burglary and theft charges. Jackson was also recently charged with forgery in Montgomery County. In that case, which was adjudicated earlier this month, the state agreed to dismiss the charge with the payment of $615 in costs & fees.
Robin Jackson was arraigned on the grand jury indictments on February 6th, 2019, and has an initial court appearance scheduled for March 28th. She was previously in a related story, as the host of the North Nashville Sip & Paint event. Jackson is currently out on a $5,000 bond in Davidson County.
Jackson was reached prior to publication, but has not yet provided a response.
