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. Roy, 50, the U.S. Postal Service intercepted 11 envelopes containing federal tax refund checks, all labeled with Roy’s Clifton address. Each envelope was addressed to a different individual, which matched names on a typed list taped inside Roy’s mailbox.
