Report Oregon Tax Fraud Quickly and Easily
Nationally, there is a difference of approximately $681 billion between tax money collected and tax money owed. This money is all due to tax fraud and tax evasion by those who do not want to pay the total amount owed. Tax fraud adversely affects the average American. DoNotPay views these actions as unfair to those who struggle and still meet their tax obligations fully and on time. We believe that there should be an easy way for the average citizen to help the IRS identify businesses and corporations involved in these illegal tax activities.
DoNotPay has created a way for the average person to help fight the travesty of tax fraud. Our new tax fraud reporting product enables you to easily report any suspicious tax activities on businesses, corporations, and individuals with whom you do business. The best part is that you will have an opportunity to earn cash rewards for doing so, or you can choose to report the activity anonymously. All you need to do is answer a few short questions about the company and its suspicious activity. DoNotPay files an official report with the IRS on your behalf. You can then earn as much as 30% of the money collected by the IRS.
What Exactly Is Tax Fraud?
Tax fraud is defined as the result of individuals or businesses that "willfully and intentionally falsify information on a tax return to limit the amount of tax liability." Or using false information on the tax return to avoid paying everything they owe. Examples of tax fraud include:
- Using a fake social security number
- Claiming personal expenses as business expenses
- Claiming false deductions
- Knowingly failing to file payroll tax reports
- Failing to report any cash payments to their employees
- Not reporting all of their income
- Failing to withhold federal income taxes from employee paychecks
- Failing to report and pay payroll taxes that have been withheld from employee pay
- Claiming an exemption for a nonexistent child
Is Tax Evasion the Same as Tax Fraud?
While tax evasion falls under the umbrella definition of tax fraud, tax evasion is illegally avoiding paying taxes owed. It carries a different sentencing structure than other types of tax fraud. An example of tax evasion is rate manipulation, where an employer manipulates Unemployment Insurance payroll tax rate to achieve a lower rate to pay less money in taxes.
