This investigation found that prisoners serving long sentences at high security prisons are taking advantage of the US government by filing false tax returns. The prisoners claim to be working at a defunct business and submit tax returns. Most prisoners involved in the scam receive a refund. The investigators found that this scam has been around for a long time, and many prison officials were aware of it.
