Lawyer’s Guide to Tax Fraud Whistleblower Protection Law
The Taxpayer First Act (TFA), which was signed into law on July 1, 2019, protects tax whistleblowers against retaliation, including whistleblowers that have provided information to the IRS through the IRS whistleblower reward program. The intention behind this law is to encourage whistleblowers to come forward if they have valuable inside information regarding tax noncompliance. This white paper reviews who is protected under the TFA and discusses what whistleblowing is protected under the Act.
Jason Zuckerman litigates whistleblower retaliation and rewards, wrongful discharge, and other employment-related claims, and authors the Whistleblower Protection Law Blog. His broad experience includes serving as Senior Legal Advisor to the Special Counsel at the U.S. Office of Special Counsel, the federal agency charged with protecting whistleblowers in the federal government. In 2012, the Secretary of Labor appointed Zuckerman to serve on the Whistleblower Protection Advisory Committee, which makes recommendations to the Secretary of Labor to improve OSHA’s administration of federal whistleblower protections.
