Memphis Woman Gets 22 Years for Tax Fraud

A Memphis woman has recently been sentenced to 22 years in prison and ordered to pay nearly $700,000 in restitution after her tax fraud scheme was shut down by IRS Criminal Investigation.

Aundria Bryant-Branch, 38, was providing stolen social security numbers and other sensitive data to third party tax return filers.  The information was obtained from the Memphis Police Department. The news stories do not identify Bryant-Branch as a former employee of the Memphis Police Department, but it seem clear that she was either an employee or a contractor/vendor who would have had access to the confidential info.

The other parties involved in this scheme were responsible for filing the false tax returns and bilking the federal government out of thousands of dollars during the period 2006-2008.
