A Phenix City resident has been sentenced to serve more than seven years in prison for her involvement in a tax refund fraud ring. 

Tamika Floyd was also ordered by a judge to pay more than $3 million in restitution. 

Floyd pleaded guilty last October to filing false income tax returns and identity theft. She worked at the Alabama Department of Public Health and the Department of Human Resources.

Her jobs gave her access to individuals’ personal information, which she then provided to co-conspirators who used the information to file false tax returns.

More than 3,000 fraudulent returns were filed claiming more than $7 million in tax refunds. Floyd’s co-conspirators are scheduled to be sentenced in August.
