Chicago Sun-Times - - CITY BEAT -

Jurors have con­victed two Chicago-area res­i­dents of try­ing to de­fraud the In­ter­nal Rev­enue Ser­vice by falsely claim­ing more than $11.7 mil­lion in tax re­funds over sev­eral years.

A spokes­woman for the IRS crim­i­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tion’s of­fice said jurors re­turned guilty ver­dicts on all counts against 55-year-old Mil­dred Ma­clin of Chicago and 58-year-old Derek Jack­son of South Hol­land. Ma­clin and Jack­son are to be sen­tenced in Au­gust. Pros­e­cu­tors said the scheme in­cluded two oth­ers who pleaded guilty ear­lier. The govern­ment said the tax loss to the IRS was $1.4 mil­lion.
