(AP Photo/Matt Rourke, File) PHILADELPHIA — The mother of jailed rapper Meek Mill is calling on Philadelphia's district attorney to "step in" and help her son.

U.S. Attorney Matthew G.T. Martin for the state's Middle District announced in a news release that Robinson admitted she prepared false returns for her clients that fraudulently claimed the earned income tax credit and sought inflated refunds.

To qualify her clients for the earned income tax credit, Robinson reported that they earned income providing household services, such as babysitting and care taking.

Prosecutors say Robinson trained other employees at Tax Breaks to prepare false returns in a similar fashion.

In addition to the fees charged by Tax Breaks, Robinson often required her clients to pay her an additional fee in cash.

Prosecutors say Robinson's conduct caused a tax loss of approximately $600,737.

U.S. District Court Judge Thomas D. Schroeder ordered Robinson to pay $120,980 in restitution to the U.S. Department of Internal Revenue Service.
