Tax Fraud Investigations Bureau
The Tax Fraud Investigations Bureau (TFIB) investigates persons, businesses and other entities suspected of tax fraud. When a person is suspected of tax fraud, the TFIB coordinates with law enforcement, other agencies, persons and businesses to gather evidence. Those suspected of tax fraud are tried through the New Mexico judicial system.
TFIB often coordinates investigations with federal, state, and local law enforcement and compliance agencies investigating other crimes. For example, an investigation could involve local law enforcement, the New Mexico Fish and Wildlife Department, and the FBI in investigating a person suspected of tax fraud and interstate fraud involving illegal big-game hunting.
