The fact that the man was doing the taxes on her behalf might complicate the issue. Perhaps he will claim he was owed a fee. Perhaps he will say he signed the form for her because he thought, as preparer, he was permitted to do that, or because he thought she was illiterate, or he couldn't locate her when the form was due.

Perhaps he is a liar and a criminal. Perhaps the judge hears these stories all day, everyday.

This is why so many times when a person has been victimized by some unscrupulous person the police response is, "it's a civil matter." All too often these situations degrade into a "he said, she said" situation that is extremely difficult to unravel.
