It was an odd break-in back in December at the CC Tax and Accounting Service, according to investigators.
“There was no sign of forced entry and really not much to work with in the way of physical evidence,” explained Dallas Police Sgt. Bill Gorman.
As detectives continue to work on the case, more victims are coming forward.
“More than 60 victims of fraud (have now come forward) stemming from the theft of that computer at the company, Gorman said.
With little physical evidence, detectives are waiting for help from the IRS. Georgia is one of seven states participating in a pilot program aimed at improving cooperation between revenue agents and local law officers.
“We have a program set up to share information with our external partners, such as law enforcement,” said IRS spokesman Mark Green.
With that kind of cooperation, Gorman hopes detectives can find out where the phony returns were filed and where the illegally obtained refunds are being sent.
