We study the decay width and forward-backward asymmetry of the lepton pair for the inclusive decay b -->s tau (+)tau (-) in the two Higgs doublet model with three level flavor changing neutral currents (model III) and analyze the dependencies of these quantities on the model III parameters, including the leading order QCD corrections. We find that there is a considerable enhancement in the decay width and neutral Higgs effects are detectable for large values of the parameter <()over bar>(D)(N,tau tau).
