A former IRS employee in Fresno was sentenced to 15 months in prison and ordered to pay $33,780 in restitution as part of a tax fraud case.


Kimberly English, 53, was an IRS employee when she prepared and filed her own fraudulent tax returns in 2011-12. She also prepared and filed tax returns for others, including her daughter and her daughter’s boyfriend. The returns included fraudulent claims for false deductions and credits.

“When IRS employees file fraudulent tax returns, the public’s confidence in the IRS is eroded. This unethical and criminal behavior by an IRS employee with knowledge of the system will never be tolerated and will be investigated and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” stated Special Agent in Charge Rod Ammari of the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration.

Judge Dale A. Drozd ordered English to begin serving her sentence Sept. 21.
