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.

This online CPE webinar will teach you how to add an extremely profitable revenue stream to your practice. Learn how to submit a Whistleblower Claim to the IRS on behalf of your Client/Whistleblower.

This webinar would cover : 

  • How to increase your chances of the Claim being accepted and Rewards paid. 
  • What the IRS is looking for in a claim and how they determine "Reward Amounts". 
  • How to appeal the Claim Reward?
  • How to find out exactly how much of your Whistleblower Information was used. 
  • How long a normal claim takes from beginning to end.
  • How much has been paid by the Government on all Whistleblower Claims during the fiscal year 2019.
