A Chicago, Illinois, woman was sentenced to 30 months in prison for conspiring to file fraudulent tax returns using stolen identities, announced the Justice Department’s Tax Division. According to documents filed with the court, from 2012 to 2015 Dominique King, 27, conspired with Roxann Gist, 45, and another co-conspirator to file at least 858 fraudulent income tax returns, using stolen names and social security numbers. Those fraudulent returns sought more than $2.7 million in refunds. As part of the scheme, Gist and King acquired the personal identification information of thousands of unsuspecting individuals and directed others to receive and collect fraudulent income tax refund checks and to open up bank accounts to access direct deposits of such refunds.
