Registered Nurse Jennifer Hansen was sentenced to two years in prison after being found guilty of filing false tax returns.
Hansen was employed by a medical records company to evaluate individuals who applied for life insurance policies. She was responsible for conducting full medical examinations to make sure the applicants did not have any major health issues they had not disclosed. Between 2016 and 2018 she earned hundreds of thousands of dollars from the company and omitted all of it from her personal tax returns.
During the investigation into her tax crimes, it was discovered that a substantial portion of her income was also unearned. Hansen had submitted hundreds of records claiming she had examined a real patient when she had not.
In addition to the prison sentence, Hansen was ordered to pay restitution to the IRS in the amount of $257,830.44, and to her previous employer in the amount of one million dollars.
