Curious about how to report tax fraud anonymously or how to report fraud to the IRS anonymously? We hope this IRS Whistleblower Information can answer some of your questions.
The IRS Whistleblower Program
The IRS Whistleblower Program is a program placed in effect by the IRS Whistleblower Office. This IRS Whistleblower Program pays money to people who report tax fraud or other IRS fraud by blowing the whistle on persons or companies who fail to pay the tax that they owe. Upon filing an IRS Whistleblower Claim, the IRS may offer a whistleblower reward of up to 40% of the additional tax, penalty or other amounts it collects or recovers through from the IRS whistleblower action, but only if the IRS uses information provided by the whistleblower.
How To Report Tax Fraud Anonymously
The IRS Whistleblower Claims must be submitted to the IRS Whistleblower Office under penalty of perjury. There is a special IRS Whistleblower Claim Form (Form 211) and an application for a whistleblower award that must be completed and filed with the Internal Revenue Service Whistleblower Office. It is extremely important that you retain an experienced whistleblower lawyer to assist you in filing your Tax Fraud Claim or IRS Whistleblower Claim to maximize the likelihood of receiving a substantial whistleblower reward. Some examples of the detailed information that an experienced IRS Whistleblower Attorney will assist you with include the following:
- If the IRS Whistleblower withholds available information or does not include the proper information, the IRS Whistleblower may not be considered by the IRS Whistleblower Office in making any whistleblower award determination.
- If the documents or supporting evidence are known to the IRS Whistleblower but not in his/her possession, there is a certain way these documents should be described by the IRS Whistleblower to identify their location and relevance.
- Generally, except in unusual instances, the IRS Whistleblower should include the whistleblower evidence with the initial submission to the IRS Whistleblower Office.
- Our IRS Whistleblower Attorneys will assist IRS Whistleblowers with organizing exhibits, preparing documents, and exhibits for the IRS Whistleblower Office.
How To Report Tax Evasion Anonymously
The IRS places strict requirements on whistleblowers seeking awards but also desiring to remain anonymous. Typically this is not allowed; however, by retaining an experienced Whistleblower lawyer, you may be able to retain some form of anonymity or protection from retaliation upon bringing an IRS Whistleblower Claim. It is important to discuss your rights and options with an experienced whistleblower attorney before you blow the whistle.
