The Tennessee Comptroller’s Office has seen an increase in suspected fraud reports in the past year.

Comptroller spokesperson Blake Fontenay says a year-old fraud reporting website contributed to that increase.

Christian County's Judge executive is making efforts to halt potential threats of fraud within his county's budgeting process.

Kentucky Auditor Adam Edelen identified the threats in his annual audit.

Edelen says the first risk comes from consolidated bookkeeping in the county jail.

A Murray Police Department investigation of a case of tax preparer fraud has led to one arrest and additional drug charges. Officers served a search warrant Monday afternoon at the business FO SHO DOUGH TAX following a tip of suspicious account activity by a local bank. A search of the business and residence of owner Silvia Jones turned up over 10,000 dollars in cash and four pounds of marijuana. Police arrested 20-year-old Anna Urquhari at the Jones residence on charges of trafficking marijuana.
