New York State Grant Money Awarded to Fight Tax and Public Benefit Fraud.

New York State officials have announced that $14.7 million in grant money has been awarded to 28 district attorneys' offices to target tax and public benefits fraud.

The grants fund personnel, including forensic accountants, investigators and assistant district attorneys, who work to build cases for prosecution.

These funds are in addition to the $860,700 in Crimes Against Revenue Program (CARP) funds awarded to district attorneys' offices six months ago.

All taxes, such as sales, excise and income, are subject to these investigations.
