Waterloo woman going to federal prison for filing false tax returns

Posted:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

A Waterloo woman who filed false tax returns will spend 18 months in federal prison.

Karla Myles, 43, was sentenced October 13 after pleading guilty in to three counts of making false, fictitious or fraudulent claims on U.S. Income Tax Returns.

In the plea agreement, Myles admitted to knowingly and willfully filing at least 22 federal tax returns which she knew to be false, fictitious and fraudulent from 2006 through 2008.

Myles prepared the returns for clients on her personal computer and filed them with the IRS electronically.  All of the returns filed claimed a refund pursuant to the Earned Income Tax Credit.  The returns resulted in the payment of more than $70,000.

Court documents say that in some cases, Myles was paid by the taxpayers for her services, while in other cases, she deposited the refund payments into specified bank accounts.

Myles was sentenced to 18 months in prison, three years of supervised release and restitution was ordered.
