LOS ANGELES — Stephen McDow of Laguna Beach is facing four years imprisonment for failing to return a $110,000 tax refund that the IRS mistakenly sent him.

The tax refund was intended for a 67-year-old woman, who hadn’t notified the IRS that she had closed the account, which had since been assigned to Stephen McDow.
