US charges 25 in Fla. in ID theft, tax fraud case

MIAMI (AP) — Federal authorities in South Florida have charged 25 people in the latest major identity theft and tax refund fraud operation.

Miami U.S. Attorney Wifredo Ferrer and other law enforcement officials planned to release details about the case at a news conference Thursday.

South Florida is a national hub for identity theft used to file for tens of millions of dollars in fraudulent tax refunds. The latest arrests come just before the April 15 deadline for filing federal tax returns.

About 200 people in South Florida have been charged with identity theft and tax fraud since 2012.
