The IRS seeks specific and credible information in support of whistleblower tax fraud allegations regarding noncompliant taxpayers. The IRS Whistleblower Office awards whistleblowers up to 30 percent of the tax, penalty and other amounts it collects from persons or companies that do not pay the tax they owe.
