Per the newly enacted Whistle blower Law for IRS, if you know of an individual taxpayer who you believe is defrauding the government, contact us today for a free consultation to discuss the circumstances of your potential action.
The IRS has enacted a False Claims Act known as “Whistle blower Provision” to detect underpayments of tax and to bring to trial and punishment persons guilty of violating the internal revenue laws. This new provision applies to both Corporate Tax Fraud and/or any individual whose gross income exceeds $200,000 for any taxable year subject to such action, and if the tax, penalties, interest, additions to tax and additional amounts in dispute exceed $2,000,000.
If the IRS proceeds with any administrative or judicial action based on information brought to their attention by an individual, such individual shall receive a Finders Fee from 10 to 30% of the collected proceeds (including penalties, interest, additions to tax, and additional amounts) or from any settlements in response to such action. The determination of the amount of such award by the Whistle blower Office shall depend upon the extent to which the individual substantially contributed to such action.
Percentage of awards rise if initiation of action was based on original information provided by the Whistle blower as opposed to the source of information being public knowledge.
If the Whistle blower office determines the collection action was based principally on disclosures or information provided by the Whistle blower results from a judicial or administrative hearing, from a government report, hearing, audit, or investigation or from the news media, the Whistle blower Office may award such sums as it considers appropriate but in no case more than 10 percent of the collected proceeds (including penalties, interest, additions to tax, and additional amounts) resulting from such action. It takes into account the significance of the individual’s information and the contributions of such individual or any legal representative of such individual. This DOES NOT APPLY if the information resulting in the initiation of the action was originally provided by the Whistle blower. In that event, awards might rise to a ceiling of 30%.
The Whistle blower Office may appropriately reduce an award if it determines that the claim for an award is brought by an individual who planned and initiated the actions that led to the underpayment of tax. If such individual is convicted of criminal conduct arising from the role described in the preceding sentence, the Whistle blower Office shall deny any award.
