BATON ROUGE - A former supervisory agent at the Baton Rouge office of the Internal Revenue Service has been charged in connection with her alleged unauthorized and simultaneous operation of a private tax service.

The Advocate reports 61-year-old Jeanne L. Gavin faces one count of conflict of interest and one count of exceeding authorized access to a government computer.

In 2005, prosecutors say Gavin formed a tax and accounting service called Too Cool Enterprises LLC.

Gavin's federal charges allege she operated that company from 2005 through 2009 without first obtaining a written conflict of interest waiver from the IRS.

Gavin retired in September 2009 after a 30-year career

She was charged in a bill of information.

It was unclear whether Gavin has an attorney.
