From an Albany Times Union profile of William Comiskey, Deputy Commissioner for Enforcement in the New York State Tax Department:
[W]e've done a little project on tax preparers. We go out pretending to be tax payers ... we've done it at 170 different tax preparers. Fifty-one of them have prepared bad returns that are just horribly fraudulent.
