Tampa, Florida - A federal judge sentenced Jennifer Meier Hunt Thursday to two-and-a-half years in jail for filing tax returns with stolen identities and information.
Officials says they got a tip Hunt and two others were using stolen identities to electronically file 75 fraudulent federal income tax returns.
According to authorities, the value of the refunds would have resulted in $187,687. Some of the returns were rejected by the Internal Revenue Service, but 47 of the fraudulent returns were accepted resulting in Hunt receiving $97,238 in tax refunds.
