You don’t need to be a United States citizen to be eligible for awards for revealing tax fraud. The IRS whistleblower rewards program has special provisions for foreign citizens who reveal tax fraud to the IRS. However, the whistleblower must submit the information in the right way and should have legal representation. There are many major companies in the U.S. that do not pay their taxes and set up foreign subsidiaries for the purpose of tax evasion. Foreign nationals, including those working for U.S. companies are often in a position to know about the fraud. Under the whistleblower rewards program an individual with the right information can get as much as 30% of what the government recovers. In addition, many foreign banks are complicit in helping Americans and American companies in evading taxes here. Those banks may be held liable under the right circumstances. Special protections exist in the law to protect whistleblowers from retaliation.
