BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - A federal judge in Birmingham has sentenced a Georgia woman to serve seven months in prison on charges related to false tax returns.

Federal authorities say Janice Foy, who lives in Snellville, Georgia, owned and operated a now-closed tax preparation business in Birmingham. She pleaded guilty to two charges in May and was sentenced Tuesday.

Authorities say the judge also Janice Foy to repay the Internal Revenue Service $70,045 for filing false returns and ordered her to serve a year of supervised release once she gets out of prison.

Between 2007 and 2010, Foy is accused of filing false returns for clients that included false items to get a bigger refund or greater deductions and credits. Authorities say the government’s total loss was $90,798.
