How do you report a taxpayer to the IRS anonymously?

A Form 211 submitted to the IRS Whistleblower Office will not be processed if the form was submitted anonymously or under an alias.  Whistleblowers must use their real name on the Form 211 and sign the Form 211 under penalty of perjury for the Form to be processed.  Even though a whistleblower’s real name appears on a filed Form 211, the IRS operates under strict rules and procedures that are designed to protect a whistleblower’s identity.  You can read more about whistleblower protection laws here.
