NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The owner of a bookkeeping service called Nunya Business pleaded guilty Tuesday in Nashville to federal tax evasion charges.
Federal prosecutors say Mary K. Barber of Clarksville failed to pay taxes on hundreds of thousands of dollars she embezzled from clients.
Investigators with the IRS said she forged her clients' signatures on checks made out to herself or Nunya Business. She also pleaded guilty to one count of bank fraud.
Her clients included an interior design firm, a hair salon in Cheatham County and two companies in Williamson County.
In total, prosecutors say she failed to report more than $224,000 in income.
Barber was originally charged in three Middle Tennessee counties, but state prosecutors deferred the cases for federal prosecution.
