According to court documents, 30-year-old Menomonee Falls resident Tiffany Harden received over $120,000 in refunds from 35 fake income tax returns filed in 2012 and was sentenced to 30 months in prison on August 11, the Journal Sentinel reported.
Harden retained the private information of some individuals by offering to do their taxes for them, after which they never heard from her. In addition to scamming the IRS, Harden went through the U.S. Postal Service, alleging to be homeless in order to qualify for federal food stamps. Harden pleaded guilty to the charges against her.
