A California resident pleaded guilty last week to conspiring to submit false claims for income tax refunds and to bank fraud, according to the Department of Justice Tax Division. The woman worked with others to file false returns and allegedly obtain over $9 million in improper tax refunds. Her co-conspirators pleaded guilty earlier this year to related charges.
The Californian will face up to ten years in prison for the conspiracy and up to sixty years in prison for the bank fraud. She may also be subject to a period of supervised release, restitution, and monetary penalties.
