Three years ago this month I expressed myself hurt that Joan Farr f.k.a. Joan Heffington did not invite me to join Association For Honest Attorneys, 2018 T. C. Memo. 41, filed 4/3/18.

See my blogpost “Why Didn’t She Ask Me?” 4/20/15.

But now that I’ve read Judge Chiechi’s review of the goings-on at that ex-501(c)(3), I’m really glad Joan never asked me.

“Specifically, Ms. Farr used petitioner’s checking account … to make certain purchases from certain department stores and grocery stores, such as Dillard’s, Walmart, Kwik Shop, Kohl’s, Walgreens, and Dillons.  In addition, Ms. Farr used petitioner’s checking account … to make automobile-related purchases from certain vendors, such as QuikTrip, A&A Auto Salvage, Derby Quick Lube, K-15 Auto Salvage, and Meineke.  Ms. Farr also used petitioner’s checking account…to make certain home-related and real-estate related purchases from certain stores, such as Slumberland, Westar Energy, Lowes, T&S Tree Service, Gene’s Stump Grinding Service, Dutch’s, Echostar Dish, Allstate, Roberts Overdoors Inc., Lusco Brick & Stone, MY Construction, and Star Lumber & Supply.  In addition, Ms. Farr used petitioner’s checking account …to make certain payments with respect to a USAA credit card.  Ms. Farr also used petitioner’s checking account…to make a $189.50 payment to an animal clinic and a $7,750 payment to St. John’s Military School for tuition for her son, and another $100 payment to that school.  In addition, Ms. Farr used petitioner’s checking account…to pay $2,200 for the exhumation and DNA testing of Ms. Farr’s father’s remains.” 2018 T. C. Memo. 41, at pp. 7-8.

Oh, and the Eighteenth Judicial District Court of Sedgwick County, KS, entered default judgment against Joan for unauthorized practice of law and consumer fraud.

But Joan is irrepressible.

“Ms. Farr continued…to provide in petitioner’s name unauthorized legal assistance to certain individuals, including herself with respect to, inter alia,  her challenges to the …injunction and the fines imposed by the Sedgwick County district court against her for practicing law without a license, her arrest for hosting an underage drinking party, and a lawsuit filed against a local school district regarding her son.” 2018 T. C. Memo. 41, at p. 14.

Joan and the Association For Honest Attorneys aren’t exempt from tax. Why am I not surprised?

Footnote, 10/10/18: Joan Farr a/k/a Heffington has decided there is no honest attorney left, after 10 Cir. affirms Judge Chiechi in Farr v. Com’r, 18-9002, 10/1/18. I beg to differ, of course. Once again, my colleague Peter Reilly, CPA, brought this to my attention. I only report Tax Court.

  1. […] Lew Taishoff did not report separately on the decision, but he did update his post on the Tax Court decision. […]
