The IRS Whistleblower Program allows a whistleblower to receive an award if the whistleblower presents specific and credible information about a tax fraud that leads the IRS to collect an amount over $2 million from an entity (such as a corporation) or an individual with a gross income of $200,000 for the relevant tax period.

If these criteria are fulfilled, the whistleblower can recover between 15-30% of the collected proceeds, including penalties, interest, additions to tax and other amounts.
