Bennett Woman Sentenced to Thirty Months in Federal Prison for Failing to Pay Taxes on Stolen Money

Stole more than $1.5 million from her former employer

A woman who failed to pay taxes on more than $1.5 million she stole from her former employer was sentenced October 2, 2018, to 30 months in federal prison. 

Bobbie Hora-Guill, age 46, from Bennett, Iowa, received the prison term after an April 4, 2018, guilty plea to making and subscribing a false tax return.  At the plea hearing and in a plea agreement, Hora-Guill admitted she made and signed a false tax return for at least 2013 because she failed to report all of her income.  Overall, Hora-Guill failed to report as income and pay taxes on more than $1.5 million she stole from her former employer. 

Hora-Guill was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Judge Linda R. Reade.  Hora-Guill was sentenced to 30 months’ imprisonment.  She was also ordered to pay the United States’ bill of costs.  She must also serve a 1-year term of supervised release after the prison term.  There is no parole in the federal system.

Hora-Guill was released on the bond previously set and is to surrender to the Bureau of Prisons on a date yet to be set.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jacob Schunk and investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Internal Revenue Service.
