Clifton man pleads guilty in tax fraud scheme
A Clifton man has pled guilty in a complex tax refund fraud scheme that involved the false filing of returns using the names of people doing time in an Arizona prison, the U.S. Attorney’s office said Thursday.
According to information included in a plea agreement for Michael L.

Each envelope was addressed to a different individual, which matched names on a typed list taped inside Roy’s mailbox.
