WBAL NewsRadio 1090: Franchot Blocks Electronic Tax Return Acceptance From 20 Preparers

March 27, 2018

Comptroller Peter Franchot on Tuesday announced that his office has halted electronic tax return acceptance from 20 tax preparers at 24 locations in Maryland, Virginia, Texas and California.


The suspensions were set off by a high volume of questionable returns, and follow 34 other suspensions issued since the start of the tax season. A list of the blacklisted tax preparers is available online.


"Stopping unscrupulous tax preparers from swindling hardworking Maryland taxpayers out of their money is my agency's top priority each tax season," Comptroller Franchot said. "My Questionable Return Detection Team constantly monitors tax filings looking for corrupt preparers submitting false returns, hurting individuals and their families."


In 2016 and 2017, Franchot's office blocked returns from 95 businesses in 113 locations.


Taxpayers who suspect fraud are asked to report the issue to the comptroller's office by calling 1-800-MD-TAXES.
