MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A suburban Milwaukee woman has been sentenced to 30 months in a federal prison after she admitted committed tax, food stamp, and mail fraud.
30-year-old Tiffiny Harden of Menomonee Falls was also ordered to pay $120,000 in restitution to the IRS and the USDA.
Prosecutors said Harden received over $120,000 in federal income tax refunds in 2012, by filing 35 false tax returns and claiming credits and other tax breaks in the names of other people.
Some victims said Harden offered to fill out their returns -- but after they gave their personal information, they never heard back from her.
Authorities said she also applied for food stamps with fraudulent mailings.
