U.S. Attorney George Beck's office says the announcement will be Thursday in Montgomery.

In recent years Beck's office has prosecuted many cases involving fraudulent tax returns seeking millions in tax refunds. The cases have involved public and private employees who had access to identity information, tax preparation services that prepared the fraudulent returns, and even a postal employee who was picking up the refunds.
