for tax fraud
CONCORD, N.H. — New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen has asked the Secret Service and Internal Revenue Service to investigate reports of tax fraud affecting more than 150 doctors and health care providers in the state and in Vermont.
The medical societies in both states say Social Security numbers have been stolen and used to file fraudulent federal tax returns. At least several hospitals and some private providers have been targeted.
Rick Adams, a spokesman for Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, told the Valley News about 50 doctors and other employees who work at the hospital have been affected.
