Types of Tax Fraud
Fraud occurs when an individual or corporation deliberately provides false or misleading information in an attempt to hide their annual income or cover up an act of wrongdoing for personal or financial gain. Cases of fraud can include:
- A company or individual deliberately underreporting income
- Keeping two sets of books that track legitimate and illegitimate finances
- Submitting false data into financial logs and records
- Claiming personal expenses as business expenses
- Hiding or transferring assets or income
- Overstating deductions
- Claiming false deductions
There are many ways that a corporation or an individual is able to commit tax fraud. However, most tax fraud cases involve the following scenarios:
- Non-filing: Occurs when a taxpayer fails to file a tax return on time, either intentionally or unintentionally.
- Underreporting: Occurs when a taxpayer understates his or her income or overstates deductions, exemptions or credits on his or her tax return.
- Underpayment: Occurs when a taxpayer files his or her tax return, but fails to pay the amount on time.

Reporting Tax Fraud
In most cases, IRS whistleblower claims are rewarded if the informant provides information or evidence that identifies cases of large-scale tax fraud. There are two types of claims that whistleblowers are awarded for:
- If the case of tax fraud exceeds $2 million, the whistleblower can receive between 15 to 30 percent of the amount of taxes, penalties and interest that the IRS collects. If the case of fraud concerns an individual, then his or her annual income must exceed $200,000.
- If the monetary value of the fraud does not exceed $2 million or the individual does not have an income greater than $200,000, then the whistleblower will be awarded a maximum of 15 percent of the damages recovered with a maximum of $10 million.
The IRS is charged with keeping the identity of the informant confidential and must pay the reward once it completes its investigation into the tax fraud and collects the amounts owed.
In order to be eligible for the reward, a whistleblower must have concrete proof of the tax fraud that leads to a credible case. If you have evidence that a business or individual has committed tax fraud, you should report it immediately.
