Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Robert C. "Bobby" Scott, Ranking Democratic Member on the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security, issued the following statement on the numerous complaints of an alleged tax preparation scam throughout Hampton Roads, Virginia:

"As tax season approaches, I implore taxpayers to be aware of tax preparation scams that usually include egregious fees and clearly take advantage of taxpayers who seek assistance filing their state and federal income taxes. After learning about the numerous complaints and media reports of one company operating throughout Hampton Roads denying or delaying tax refunds to their customers, I am asking the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate this matter. I also encourage taxpayers to visit the IRS's website at to learn about the IRS Free File service or to get a list of IRS-approved Free File companies."
