It's something no taxpayer ever wants to hear. Local businesses are hearing “you're being audited” more often. They say it is a money grab and just another example of how New York is bad for business. Thousands are audited each year, even if they follow the rules.
Business after business told the same thing. They want their stories told, but they’re too scared of being targeted by the state.
When it comes to taxes, there's nothing worse than an audit, even if you're following all the rules and have paid what's due to the state. A lot of local business owners say overly aggressive auditors are becoming a huge problem in New York, but they fear by speaking out, they'll be the next target.
