A Chenango County woman will be sentenced in July for assisting in the preparation of false tax returns.

Officials with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Northern District say 41 year old Lavyette Anna Louisa Garcia of Oxford has pleaded guilty in federal court, admitting she prepared at least 110 false tax returns between 2011 and 2014 in Oxford and Norwich.  The action reportedly cost the United States $848,196.

In addition, authorities say Louisa Garcia pleaded guilty to making a false claim against the United States.

Louisa Garcia faces up to 8 years in prison, three years probation and a maximum fine of $250,000.
