The Oregon Department of Revenue is going back over big tax returns, after a Salem woman was falsely awarded a $2 million refund by a manual reviewer.

Officials say 25-year-old Krystle Reyes used Turbo-Tax to file a fake 2011 income tax return, where she reported earning 3 million dollars.     

Officials discovered the fraud when reyes reported to turbo-tax that she lost the debit card holding her refund of $2.1 million.

She was booked, and then released from the Marion county jail.

Reyes is expected in court on July 5th.

The Oregon Department of Revenue will be inspecting large refunds.
