Thirty-five-year-old Linda O. Jumah of Newark, New Jersey, intentionally under-reported income for tax year 2015. She filed a fraudulent personal income tax return, failing to report $121,941, resulting in a tax loss of $39,633, according to court documents.
Jumah faxes a maximum 5-year prison term and a $250,000 fine. Her sentencing hearing is scheduled for February 14, 2018.
Jumah was arrested and later released on $75,000 unsecured bond.
