IRS Whistleblower Program 10 Years On: What Works, What Doesn’t & What Must Change

9:00 AM - 10:30 AM, May 03, 2016

2016 marks the 10-year anniversary of the IRS Whistleblower Program that pays out cash awards between 15% and 30% to those who provide original source information that leads to the collection of more than $2 million of tax, penalties and interest. To date IRS has paid out millions in cash awards, including $104 million, the largest whistleblower award in history, to Bradley Birkenfeld in connection with the UBS case.

The program has gone through many changes over the past 10 years and has been alternately praised and vilified for its progress. Listen as recognized experts on the IRS Whistleblower Program discuss the program’s evolution, their own personal experiences in working within the program, what works, what doesn’t and what needs to change.
