Former H&R Block Manager Sentenced to Year in Prison for Identity Theft

Dubose, the former manager of an H&R Block outlet, pleaded guilty in March to one count of wire fraud and one count of filing false claims with the Internal Revenue Service. The court sentenced him to 12 months and one day on each count of the conviction, to be served concurrently

According to documents filed with the court, while working as a manager of an H&R Block Preparation store in Van Nuys, Calif., Dubose used his access to H&R Block records to obtain the personal identifying information, including the names, dates of birth and Social Security numbers, of H&R Block clients. Dubose then used the information to create and submit to the IRS at least 12 false and unauthorized 2011 tax returns, generating fraudulent tax refunds of at least $48,593.
