WASHINGTON, D.C. — Tax returns from 20 preparers have been suspended by the state comptroller after a pattern of questionable filings was noticed.

The fraud was caught by the Questionable Return Detection Team. The tax preparers who they identified as having filed fraudulent returns have all been blocked from filing.

The Comptroller’s Office suspended 68 tax preparers last year for fraud. So far, none of them have had their privileges restored.
