Over $24 Million in Questionable Refunds Stopped by State

With tax day approaching, State comptroller Tom DiNapoli says his office has already stopped more than $24 million in questionable or fraudulent refunds. 

DiNapoli says many taxpayers claimed a refund based on incorrect information like an inflated number of dependents or understated income.  

Auditors this year stopped $3.3 million worth of refunds that were linked to tax preparers filing false returns.
