An Akron woman was convicted of tax crimes for failing to report more than $200,000 in income, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

Kelly Prigmore, 43, was found guilty following a trial on two counts of making and subscribing false federal income tax returns for the years 2006 and 2007.

Sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 12.

Prigmore worked as a self-employed home health care provider for a client who paid her for live-in 24 hour services. Prigmore filed joint personal income tax returns on which she omitted approximately $209,601 of her home health care service income, according to court documents.
