Why was my whistleblower claim denied?
Whistleblower claims are denied by the IRS for a variety of reasons including: there was no tax issue involved, the information was not credible or speculative, the information provided by the whistleblower was already provided to the IRS by another source, there is no collection of proceeds because the taxpayer does not have assets that the IRS can collect against, the taxpayer makes a successful appeal, the statute of limitations has expired, or the IRS audit or investigation results in no finding of taxpayer liability.
A carefully crafted and organized tax whistleblower submission with a completed and signed Form 211 with a legal memorandum of facts and law with supporting exhibits is crucial to increasing the chances of success of the tax whistleblower claim.
