MOTT HAVEN - NYPD officers and officials from the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance raided a tax preparer in Mott Haven today and collected box after box of what is presumed to be clients' tax returns.

E&M Multi Service was the subject of a News 12 The Bronx investigation into the handling of clients' personal information and questionable tax refunds. Many clients of the firm say they were issued supposed tax refunds on debit cards, but the cards turned out to have no value.

The Bronx District Attorney's Office says that the owner of the firm was arrested at his home today.

Police say anyone who used E&M Multi Services to file their taxes should contact the Internal Revenue Service immediately.
