Course Description

In 2006, Congress passed the Tax Relief and Health Care Act. Prior to the Act’s passage, rewards to individuals who provided information to the IRS regarding tax fraud were capped at $10 million. The Tax Relief and Health Care Act authorized the IRS to create a Whistleblower Office dedicated to investigating, processing and recovering claims concerning the underpayment of taxes. Under the IRS’ new program, whistleblowers may recover 15 to 30 percent of the amount collected provided the taxes and amounts in dispute exceed $2 million.

The IRS whistleblower program allows anyone who is aware of tax underpayments to submit an application for a whistleblower award using IRS form 211. The IRS then reviews the whistleblower’s submission and determines what action should be taken. As a part of this process, whistleblowers may be interviewed for more information. Whistleblowers are entitled to compensation if their information leads directly to an IRS recovery of at least $2 million, including interest and penalties. After the completion of a successful investigation, the IRS Whistleblower Office provides the whistleblower with an award determination.
