KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Kansas City woman who embezzled around $465,000 from her family’s company has been sentenced to two years in federal prison for failing to pay taxes on the stolen money.

The U.S. attorney’s office say 56-year-old Tammera Goodman also was ordered Wednesday to pay nearly $145,000 in restitution to the IRS and the state Missouri. She pleaded guilty in October to making false statements on a tax return.

Prosecutors say she unlawfully used money from her family’s restoration business to pay personal credit card bills and her mortgage while working as the office manager.

The company, which does business as Rainbow International of Kansas City, handles fire and water damage jobs. Prosecutors say the company chose not to prosecute Goodman and allowed her to continue to work there.
