Liberty Tax Service, a Virginia Beach-headquartered tax company, announced it was suspending 28 of its New York franchise locations from filing taxes for the remainder of the 2015 tax filing season. Liberty ceased the operations after learning the franchise owner of the businesses had electronic filing privileges suspended by the IRS, according to a release. 

“As of today, we have determined that these offices are not able to provide the level of service required to meet the Company’s standards,” Jim Wheaton, Liberty Tax chief compliance officer, said in the release.
