Rewards For Tax Whistleblowing

Tax fraud or tax evasion is a very serious crime in the United States of America and as a result the Internal Revenue Service’s Whistleblower Office has introduced a tax fraud reward scheme in order to encourage tax whistleblowing and prevent further crimes and violation of U.S Civil Law.

Whistleblower rewards

The IRS whistleblower reward can be as much as 15% to 30% of the additional tax, penalties and other charges that are collected if information provided by the whistleblower is used. Tax fraud has become rife in the United States and as a result the IRS has introduced this IRS whistleblower reward in order to encourage tax whistleblowing and curtail the amount of tax fraud.

The IRS whistleblower reward is only available to individuals who provide solid and specific information that can be used by the IRS to collect taxes from the accused.

There are two main types of tax whistleblower reward available fortax whistleblowing and these depend on the amount disputed. The first award will pay out between 15% and 30 % of the total amount recovered as long as the amount disputed exceeds $2 million and if the case deals with a specific individual then his or her gross income must exceed $200,000.

There is also a tax fraud reward program for whistleblowers that report cases of tax fraud to a lesser extent than $2 million. These whistleblower rewards are not as high and the maximum reward is 15% up to $10 million.
