MEMPHIS (AP) — An Internal Revenue Service employee in Memphis has been indicted on charges of filing false tax returns and stealing data from the agency.
The U.S. attorney’s office said in a news release Thursday that Farrah Jones of Memphis, who was hired as a tax examining technician in 2001, used the data for returns she filed for herself and others.
Prosecutors said Jones obtained dependent information from IRS files and used the data on tax returns she prepared, knowing that the taxpayers were not entitled to claim these dependents. This allegedly occurred for a year ending in February 2007.
She was arrested Thursday and released on a $5,000 bond.
