Whistleblowers are an important part of the IRS tax compliance program, and can receive substantial awards if the IRS uses their information.

If you suspect or know of an individual or a business that is not complying with the tax laws and want to claim an award, mail a completed Form 211Application for Award for Original Information, with an original signature to the Whistleblower Office using the address on the form. Include copies of all relevant supporting documentation in your possession.

See Whistleblower-Informant-AwardHow to File a Whistleblower Award Claim and The Whistleblower Law on IRS.gov for more information.
