Lantheus Medical Imaging Inc. and its former parent company Bristol-Myers Squibb  a medical imaging company that made millions of dollars’ worth of sales in New York knowingly evaded New York State and City taxes according to the NY Attorney General. Those companies have agreed to pay $6.2 million to resolve the assertions.

 The action was started by the May 2012 filing of a whistleblower, or “qui tam,” complaint in State Supreme Court in New York by a tax services provider who became aware of Lantheus’ failure to pay New York taxes. Attorney General Schneiderman’s subsequent investigation concluded that Lantheus knowingly failed to pay more than $2.2 million in New York State and City taxes.
