Learning About the New York False Claims Act
Did you know there is more than one False Claims Act? States all across the country passed their own versions, with some being even more robust than the original law!
On today’s Fraud in America, we examined New York’s False Claims Act, which has a provision allowing whistleblowers to alert the state to tax frauds. Randy Fox and David Koenigsberg are two lawyers who’ve won big tax cases, recovering millions of dollars for the state. They discuss how the New York False Claims Act works, how these cases are different from typical False Claims Act cases, and whether this law could work at a federal level.
