IRS Whistleblower Practice

Stone & Magnanini represents whistleblowers who report fraud to the IRS under the recently enacted IRS Whistleblower Program. The Firm assists whistleblowers in drafting accurate documentation and reports under appropriate IRS provisions and interacting and presenting the client’s case to high levels of the IRS in order to assist and persuade the IRS to pursue the whistleblower’s allegations. Where appropriate, Stone & Magnanini aligns itself with experienced tax professionals, including former senior IRS personnel, to create a strategic team to prepare and present each client’s case in the most effective manner possible.

Much like the SEC Whistleblower Provisions, and unlike the False Claims Act, the IRS Whistleblower Program requires that whistleblowers file a report to the IRS that describes the nature of the allegations and any evidentiary support, rather than file an action in federal court. This critical distinction highlights the importance of aligning with professionals who understand the complicated nature of the tax laws implicated by the allegations, and the unique terrain required to be navigated under the IRS Whistleblower Program.
