Gresham woman sentenced in international tax fraud schemeTell North Platte what you think

A 36-year-old Nebraska woman was sentenced Monday in federal court for assisting with an income tax scheme for people who are believed to be outside the U.S., Acting U.S. Attorney Robert C. Stuart announced.

Kathy L. Hansen was sentenced to three years of probation and ordered to pay $11,557 in restitution to the IRS.

Hansen is from Gresham, a village near York.

According to IRS investigators, in 2014 Hansen opened a bank account used to deposit federal tax refunds that were illegally obtained.

The refunds were deposited as part of a tax scheme operated by individuals believed to be outside of the U.S., Stuart said.

After federal tax refunds were deposited into her account, Hansen would send the money to individuals believed to be outside of the U.S., he said.

“Individuals should think twice before participating in fraudulent tax schemes and be prepared to face the consequences,” said Karl Stiften, the special agent in charge of IRS Criminal Investigation. “Those consequences include being branded a convicted felon and paying back what was stolen from the government.”
