FINAL ORDER OF PERMANENT INJUNCTION
AUDREY B. COLLINS District Judge.
Upon the Stipulation to Final Order of Permanent Injunction entered into between plaintiff United States of America and defendant Gary Walter Mixco (hereinafter referred to as "defendant" or "Mixco"), the Court hereby finds and orders as follows:
WHEREAS the parties have stipulated and agreed that:
1. Plaintiff, the United States of America, has filed a Complaint for Permanent Injunction (hereinafter referred to as "Complaint") in this matter against defendant.
2. Defendant does not admit the allegations in the Complaint, except that he admits that this Court has jurisdiction over him and subject matter jurisdiction of this matter.
3. The parties waive the entry of findings of fact and conclusions of law.
4. Defendant understands that this stipulated Final Order of Permanent Injunction will be entered under Fed.R.Civ.P. 65 and, once entered, will constitute the final judgment in this matter. Defendant waives any and all right to appeal from this judgment.
5. Defendant states that he entered into the Stipulation for Final Order of Permanent Injunction voluntarily, voluntarily consents to entry of this stipulated Final Order of Permanent Injunction, and agrees to be bound by the terms of this order.
6. The parties agree that entry of this stipulated Final Order of Permanent Injunction resolves only this civil injunction action, and neither precludes the United States from pursuing any other current or future civil or criminal matters or proceedings, nor precludes defendant from contesting her liability in any such matter or proceeding.
7. Defendant acknowledges that entry of this stipulated Final Order of Permanent Injunction neither precludes the Internal Revenue Service from assessing taxes, interest, or penalties against defendant for asserted violations of the Internal Revenue Code, nor precludes defendant from contesting such assessments.
8. Defendant, Gary Walter Mixco consents to the entry of this stipulated Final Order of Permanent Injunction without further notice and agrees that this Court shall retain jurisdiction over him for the purpose of implementing and enforcing the stipulated Final Order of Permanent Injunction.
It is hereby ORDERED, ADJUDGED, and DECREED that:
Pursuant to 26 U.S.C. §§ 7402(a), 7407, and 7408, Gary Walter Mixco, individually and doing business under any name, and his representatives, agents, servants, employees, attorneys, independent contractors, and anyone in active concert or participation with him, are PERMANENTLY ENJOINED from directly or indirectly:

C. Aiding or assisting in the preparation of federal income tax returns, amended returns, or any other related documents and forms that defendant knows will result in the understatement of any tax liability or the overstatement of deductions on tax returns;
