Tax preparers suspended for not filing taxes

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo on Wednesday announced the results of an initial crackdown on tax preparers.

He said 40 tax preparers in the state have been suspended because they failed to file their own personal income tax returns for 2011 and 2012.

None of the tax preparers suspended were from Oswego County.

Once suspended, tax preparers cannot legally complete or file a client’s state returns for compensation. More than 7 million New Yorkers use tax preparers each year.
