Whistleblowers in Qui Tam Tax Cases
In a qui tam tax case, an individual, as known as a whistleblower, reports to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) a tax fraud. The whistleblower or reporter has 3 years from the time the fraudulent tax return was filed for making a disclosure to the IRS. California IRS whistleblower attorneys can help guide cases through the process, so long as you contact them within this time limit.
This is a win-win situation, because qui tam tax cases help the Federal Government close its tax gap, while also recovering more resources and identifying the area of potential noncompliance and fraud. Moreover, the whistleblower receives awards when the amount in dispute exceeds $2 million; usually the rate is between 10 to 30 per cent of the money collected by the IRS. However, after an investigation by the IRS, the IRS Whistleblower Office takes a final determination regarding the whistleblower’s award amount.
