Whistleblower Award of $11.6 Million; Areas of WBO Emphasis Includes Offshore Accounts (9/1/15)

The National Whistleblower Center announced here yesterday an IRS Whistleblower Award of $11.6 million.

In the press release, one of the lawyers (Dean Zerbe) is quoted.  Here is an excerpt:
The IRS has a strong interest in hearing from – and rewarding -- whistleblowers who know about tax cheats.  From conversations I have had with senior IRS officials, the IRS is especially interested in hearing from whistleblowers who know details about the latest corporate tax shelters as well as informed whistleblowers who have knowledge about US taxpayers with illegal offshore accounts around the world – especially Hong Kong, Singapore and Central America.
