What Is Tax Fraud?
Tax fraud is deliberately misrepresenting or omitting data on a tax return or on financial reports. Unknowingly misrepresenting or omitting data is not fraud but negligence. Mistakes or accidents are a common cause of errors and this negligence is still subject to fines of up to 20% of any underpayment found. Some examples of tax fraud and tax evasion include:
- Attempts to avoid payment of an obligation
- Personal expenses are being claimed as business expenses
- Failure to report income or to file a return
- False deductions
- Misclassification of employees to avoid tax obligations
Why You Should Report Your Boss for Tax Fraud
The IRS has a whistleblower reward program that allows the whistleblower to be compensated for providing evidence of tax fraud or tax evasion. Whistleblowers may receive between 15% and 30% of the total amount recovered by the IRS as a result of the information provided. The IRS protects whistleblower identities, but reports can also be made anonymously, though they will not be rewarded. If tax fraud is discovered by the IRS and employees are found to be compliant, they may face their own tax evasion or aiding and abetting charges.
