Civil Tax Litigation
Civil tax litigation is a legal process that arises when there is a dispute between a taxpayer and the government regarding tax liabilities. It's a civil matter, not a criminal one, which means it typically involves disagreements over interpretations of tax law, the amount of tax owed, or penalties assessed rather than allegations of tax evasion or fraud.
The process usually begins after an audit by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or state tax agency, during which the agency may determine that additional taxes are owed. If the taxpayer disagrees with this assessment, they can challenge it through various administrative appeals within the agency.
If these appeals do not resolve the dispute, the taxpayer has the right to take the matter to court. The outcome of civil tax litigation can have significant financial implications for the taxpayer. If the court sides with the government, the taxpayer may be required to pay the disputed tax amount, along with penalties and interest. If the court sides with the taxpayer, the government may be ordered to refund overpaid taxes.

IRS Tax Fraud Whistleblower Reward
Tax evasion costs the United States more than $688 billion annually, according to estimates from the IRS. To tackle this problem, Congress has introduced legislation that rewards whistleblowers for reporting tax fraud. The law mandates that the IRS must pay whistleblowers between 15% and 30% of any proceeds collected from tax fraud or underpayments, provided certain criteria are met. The whistleblower's tip must be the catalyst for the IRS to take action, the amount in question must exceed $2 million, and the IRS must successfully collect the unpaid tax. These awards are mandatory for high-quality tips, and Congress has removed the previous $10 million cap on payouts to incentivize whistleblowers to come forward. However, whistleblowers often do not receive payment after first contacting the Whistleblower Office, highlighting the importance of seeking guidance from an experienced tax attorney.
