Kelly Nicole Borger, 31, of Rochester and Los Angeles, has pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge David G. Larimer to conspiring to defraud the United States.
The charge carries a maximum sentence 20 years in prison, a fine of $1,064,702, or both.
From April 2011 to April 2012, Borger, according to Assistant U.S. Attorney John J. Field, conspired with Michael Carney of Los Angeles to prepare and submit false income tax returns. She emailed Carney the names and other identifying information of 40 individuals she knew in Rochester and Carney prepared 50 fraudulent tax returns in their names, claiming undeserved tax refunds totaling $532,351. Borger received at least $169,000 for her role in conspiracy. She is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 17.
