A Kenyan Man in Kansas Sentenced to 51 Months in Prison for Filling False Tax Returns

 A Topeka, Kansas tax return preparer has been sentenced to 51 months in federal prison for filing false federal income tax returns, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said today. He was also ordered to more than $209,000 in restitution.

33-year-old John Karundo Mukundi, originally from Kenya, pleaded guilty to 14-counts of making false claims and 12-counts of wire fraud.

In his plea, he admitted he obtained tax preparation software from Tax Wise and used it to submit fraudulent tax returns electronically to the Internal Revenue Service. He used the tax returns to obtain advanced payments of refunds through refund anticipation loans and refund transfers from banks.

Mukundi used the names and Social Security numbers of real people who were not aware that he was using their identities to file false federal income tax returns.

He was arrested in March last year after traveling to Washington, DC to obtain emergency travel documents to Kenya and later boarding a flight out of the country to flee prosecution. Authorities caught up with him before the plane departed (Read that story here).
