The IRS Whistleblower Review

The whistleblower division is responsible for processing thousands of tax whistleblower claims annually. Private individuals, known as whistleblowers, are authorized to bring on behalf of the Internal Revenue Service division a tax fraud suit to recover money lost. The IRS division shares the money recovered with the whistleblowers, and because they helped the IRS division, usually they deserve a reward. They could receive 10 to 30 percent of funds collected by the government as a result of their investigation.
However, the IRS division has the discretion to choose if the whistleblower gets an award thanks to the whistleblower’s contribution to IRS process. Moreover, the Government Accountability Office reports that the IRS reward program is mired in delays because of the lengthy review process.
Furthermore, the IRS division did not have documented controls in place to protect the identities of the whistleblowers. And in contrary to the qui tam lawsuits, with the IRS, the tax whistleblowers do not have statutory protections against retaliations from employers.
However, if you know of any fraud carried out by a company against the government, contact the Evans Law Firm in California at (415) 441-8669, or by email at info@evanslaw.com. Evans Law Firm handle qui tam and whistleblower cases, as well as, financial and physical elder abuse and nursing home abuse, healthcare, insurance, annuity, and banking fraud.
