#TaxpayersAgainstFraud(“TAF”) is a non-profit organization which provides invaluable research and assistance to #Whistleblowers and their attorneys throughout the country and areas of practice, including fraud under the False Claims Act, Tax Fraud and SEC Fraud. 5 states plus DC have a statutory mechanism to report tax fraud. Tax fraud, like all areas of fraud, are rampant. The government relies on its partnership with whistleblowers to bring fraudsters to justice one at a time.
TAF is releasing a daily blog, “Fraud by the Numbers”, all month. We will highlight some of those blogs here. Highlights from yesterday’s tax fraud blog https://www.fraudinamerica.com/post/fraud-by-the-numbers-september-16 are here:
- The #FalseClaimsAct in 5 states (and DC!) recognize #whistleblowers can help combat tax cheats. New York has recovered more than $555 million in the last five years alone: https://www.fraudinamerica.com/post/fraud-by-the-numbers-september-16
- According to the IRS, nearly $1 trillion in federal taxes go unpaid each year, which would pay for the entire amount the US spends on transportation, infrastructure, and K-12 education each year: https://www.fraudinamerica.com/post/fraud-by-the-numbers-september-16
