Title: Search for neutral Higgs bosons decaying to tau pairs in association with b-quarks at the D0 Detector

We report results from a search for neutral Higgs bosons decaying to tau pairs produced in association with a b-quark in 1.2 fb{sup -1} of data taken from June 2006 to August 2007 with the D0 detector at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. The final state includes a muon, hadronically decaying tau and jet identified as coming from a b-quark. We set cross section times branching ratio limits on production of such neutral Higgs bosons {phi} in the mass range from 90 GeV/c{sup 2} to 160 GeV/c{sup 2}. Exclusion limits are set at the 95% Confidence Level for several supersymmetric scenarios.
