Alabama Man Sentenced to Federal Prison for Role in Identity Theft and Tax Refund Scheme

Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—November 14, 2013. Kevin Jackson of Montgomery, Ala., was sentenced to serve 102 months in federal prison and three years of supervised release, along with an order to pay $150,840.49 in restitution, for his role in a stolen identity refund fraud scheme, announced Assistant Attorney General Kathryn Keneally of the Justice Department’s Tax Division and U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Alabama George L. Beck Jr.  Jackson had previously pled guilty to access device fraud and to aggravated identity theft.

According to court documents, Jackson possessed a storage locker in which law enforcement authorities found a computer, three cellular telephones, at least 500 names and Social Security numbers of identity theft victims and at least 70 prepaid debit cards, all tied to a scheme to obtain fraudulent federal tax refunds by causing federal tax returns to be filed in the names of stolen identities. 

The case was investigated by special agents of the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigation and the U.S. Secret Service, along with assistance from the Montgomery Police Department.  Trial Attorneys Justin Gelfand and Jason Poole of the department’s Tax Division prosecuted the case.
