THE IRS WHISTLEBLOWER PROGRAM

What is the IRS Whistleblower Program?

If you have evidence of Federal Tax Fraud, you could be eligible for a reward under the Internal Revenue Service’s (“IRS”) Whistleblower Program. The IRS Whistleblower Program rewards whistleblowers who provide evidence of Tax Fraud up to 30% of the total recovery.

How can I be eligible for a reward under the IRS Whistleblower Program?

In order to be eligible for a reward under the 7623(b) program, the evidence must show that individuals or corporations have a tax liability of $2 million or more.

How is the IRS Whistleblower Program different than the False Claims Act?

The IRS Whistleblower Program is different than other whistleblower programs. Unlike cases brought under the False Claims Act:

  • While Whistleblowers may not submit their evidence anonymously to the IRS, working with an attorney will help assure that the identity of the whistleblower will remain confidential to the rest of the world;
  • Whistleblowers disclose their information directly to the IRS, not by filing a Complaint in Federal Court;
  • The Tax Liability must be at least $2,000,000; and
  • Whistleblowers have the right to appeal to the Tax Court.

How well does IRS Whistleblower Program work?

Between 2011 and June, 2015, the IRS collected $1.039 billion and rewarded $261 million to whistleblowers under this program.

Is the IRS Whistleblower Program the only way to blow the whistle on Tax Fraud?

The IRS Whistleblower Program is not the only program to blow the whistle on Tax Fraud. The New York State False Claims Act allows an individual to file a New York State False Claims Act case against individuals or corporations having a net income or sales of more than $ 1 million annually and have defrauded the State of New York of more than $350,000.
