Internal Revenue Service Whistleblower Process and Awards
Millions Paid In Awards
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) rewards people who provide specific and credible information to the IRS of offshore tax avoidance and other tax fraud schemes when the information leads to recovery of unpaid taxes. Last year, the IRS paid out 242 awards totaling $33.9 million; over $500 million has been paid out to tax fraud whistleblowers in the last decade. Individual whistleblowers are an important source of information for discovery and prosecution of tax fraud, particularly by companies using offshore subsidiaries and bank accounts to avoid tax in the U.S.
The IRS demands hard evidence of the fraud in order to pursue a case. A hunch or suspicion is not enough. The California and San Francisco whistleblower/qui tam attorneys at Evans Law Firm, Inc. know what the government looks for in investigating and prosecuting offshore tax avoidance schemes and can sift through the evidence you have to determine the best way to proceed with your application. Our IRS whistleblower attorneys know how to present your case with the best chance at receiving an award for your information and diligence. If you or a loved one has credible information regarding offshore tax avoidance schemes or other tax fraud schemes in California, call the whistleblower/qui tam attorneys at Evans Law Firm, Inc. (415)441-8669, and we can help.
Do not call the IRS directly with any information you have of offshore or other tax fraud as that may jeopardize your chances to receive an award. Call counsel first. Your information must lead to judicial or administrative action and qualified counsel, such as the IRS whistleblower attorneys at Evans Law Firm, understand the rules. The process can take years from start to finish but the potential award for the whistleblower is big – up to 15% of the amount collected plus penalties. Our lawyers know how to advance your case through application, investigation, and administrative and/or judicial review. We will work hard toward securing an award for the information of offshore tax avoidance schemes or other tax fraud you bring to the government.
