The police have worked with the Tax Department for the past couple of years on enforcement of the cigarette tax. Mattox says they've prevented the evasion of more than $20 million in taxes from illegal cigarette traffickers and sellers.

Now they will join forces to go beyond smokes, and track down all tax crimes, including sales and income tax fraud.
