Federal agents raided a tax service business out of Miramar several days ago as part of an investigation launched by the Internal Revenue Service.
Clients stopped by the offices of L & T Works Tuesday and found a sign posted in the window explaining that owners are meeting with attorneys regarding the recent raid.
Collin McInroy works in the shopping center where the tax preparers’ office is located and saw six or seven cars drive up.
“It was just like a movie they screeched up, they ran up and you heard 'Get on the ground. Get on the ground,’” McInroy told NBC 7.
IRS officials confirm they are investigating the business but did not reveal details.
Mona Aquino owns Pauly’s Pizza Joint nearby and said she the company has been open just a few months but appeared to be busy.
“The couple it's a husband and wife. They’re very good people,” Aquino said.
The company did not respond to requests from NBC 7.
The message to clients posted on their door reads, "Please do not be worried if you have submitted your w-2 10-99, etc. correctly. You are fine. IRS checking to make sure we are in compliance. We have all client's names, pin numbers. You will be contacted within the next 48 hours if necessary."
