dojA Robert, La.-based tax preparer has been sentenced to 87 months in prison for inflating client's refunds and trying to hide her actions. Hazel M. McGary, 46, also known as Hazel M. Alexander and Hazel M. Kimble, must also serve two years of supervised release following prison and pay the Internal Revenue Service $148,673 in restitution.

Charges against McCary included filing false tax returns, corruptly endeavoring to obstruct or impede the IRS and aggravated identity theft. She also admitted not reporting fees she received from tax preparation services on her own return.

Court documents report that from 2008 through November 2103, McGary operated tax preparation services under several names including
Including Just for You Services, Just For Taxes and H&H Unlimited Services, in Hammond, Albany, Baton Rouge and Covington, La. Her Albany business offered clients a drive-through window.

As part of a plea agreement, McGary admitted misuse of the Earned Income Tax Credit. She also used names and Social Security Numbers of others in order to obtain additional electronic filing numbers so she could hide her activity. She used these names and numbers on returns, failing to identify herself as the preparer.
