Randall Fox Comments to Law360 Regarding Passage of Tax Whistleblower False Claims Act Expansion
Partner Randall Fox discussed with Law360 New York lawmakers' recent passage of an amendment to the New York False Claims Act to close a loophole in the state’s tax whistleblower law by permitting actions against corporations and wealthy individuals who knowingly fail to file New York tax returns. Mr. Fox was formerly the chief of the bureau at the New York Attorney General’s Office that handles tax whistleblower cases under the law. He now represents whistleblowers and brought the tax case that resulted in the second largest New York False Claims Act settlement.
Supportive of the bill, Mr. Fox was quoted in the article as saying the amendment “accomplishes that same goal of making sure that the out-of-state tax cheats are not treated more favorably than the in-state tax cheats.”
