Kansas City Attorneys for Tax Fraud Whistleblower Cases
The IRS Whistleblower Reward Program provides monetary awards to those who report tax evasion, tax schemes, and underpayment of taxes. Under this program, a whistleblower may be entitled to a reward of up to triple damages and 15% to 30% of the recovered amount. However, in order to file under this law, the total damages must typically exceed $2,000,000. The legal team at Brady & Associates is dedicated to representing whistleblowers for tax fraud matters and obtaining their rightful reward.
IRS Whistleblower Reward Program
IRS whistleblowing matters are complex — and tax fraud can cover a wide range of activities. Normally, a whistleblower will hire competent counsel to help them present their claim of fraud to the IRS. Activities constituting tax fraud can include the following:
- Underreporting Income
- Improper Deductions
- Hiding Assets or Income
- False Records
- Overstating Deductions
In order to be eligible for an award, a whistleblower must provide credible evidence of fraud. If the IRS discovers that tax fraud has occurred after it investigates the matter, it will issue a statement to the whistleblower stating their award amount. Although these amounts can be substantial, if there is a discrepancy in the amount the whistleblower believes he or she should receive, their counsel can help them appeal the amount to the Tax Court within 30 days of issuance of the award.
Importantly, a whistleblower's claim of fraud to the IRS is kept confidential throughout the investigation process. However, should the matter enter into a judicial proceeding and the whistleblower's testimony is necessary, their identity may be made public.
