JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A Jacksonville-area tax return consultant has been arrested in connection with an identity theft and refund fraud scheme.

Deangelo Parker has been charged with seven counts of wire fraud and aggravated identity theft.

The indictment says Parker stole the names and Social Security numbers of people who went to Certified Tax Consultants for assistance, then, he filed fraudulent tax returns.  The tax refunds were deposited into the account for Parker's company, the indictment says.

Parker could face 20 years in prison for each count of wire fraud and two years in prison for the ID theft charge, if convicted.
