A northern New Jersey tax preparer has been sentenced to 41 months in federal prison on charges stemming from 2009's large-scale corruption sting.  

 Vincent Tabbachino also will have to serve one year of supervised release once he's freed from prison under the sentence imposed Friday. He also had previously agreed to forfeit nearly $32,000.
 
Tabbachino had pleaded guilty last April to a complaint charging him with laundering $100,000 for a government informant posing as a corrupt developer.  He also was convicted of attempted extortion and bribery charges in October 2010.
