As a means of increasing corporate tax collections, some states have turned to contingent-fee audit contractors – sometimes referred to as "bounty hunters." These bounty hunter firms are compensated based upon a percentage of the amount of tax assessed, creating an incentive for the firms to not only aggressively audit taxpayers, but to stretch interpretations of the law to and beyond the limits. Having an economic interest in the assessments resulting from the bounty hunter audits, creates an inherent conflict of interest.
