Has anyone ever filed a whistle blower action with the IRS?
Ok course. The most famous (and largest award to date at $104M) was awarded to Bradley Birkenfeld. Here is the story he put in his book Lucifer’s Banker Home - Bradley C. Birkenfeldhttps://www.c-span.org/video/?41...The IRS continues to award others also Tax Cheats Beware: IRS Whistleblower Awards Soar 322%
Do people who report tax evasion get a financial reward?
Yes:  Whistleblower - Informant Award - excerpt:The IRS Whistleblower Office pays money to people who blow the whistle  on persons who fail to pay the tax that they owe. If the IRS uses  information provided by the whistleblower, it can award the  whistleblower up to 30 percent of the additional tax, penalty and other  amounts it collects.
How do I know if a freelance model pays all the due taxes? How do I report her?
I have previously answered a similar question in the past. If you believe someone is guilty of tax evasion the IRS has what is called the Whistle blower program. Anyone that knows of a person commiting fraud can collect a reward. The IRS Whistleblower Office pays money to people who blow the whistle on persons who fail to pay the tax that they owe. If the IRS uses information provided by the whistleblower, it can award the whistleblower up to 30 percent of the additional tax, penalty and other amounts it collects.

I have $50,000 and I want to invest in something. My job doesn't have benefits or social security and I have been there over 17 years. What can I do to grow my money?
If your employer hasn't paid in to FICA for 17 years, that's highly unusual and possibly illegal. They may owe the government millions. If you are, as you say, an American and a full time employee of a charitable cause, they have to pay in to FICA as do you. Look on your W-2. Box 4 indicates the money withheld from your paycheck to pay your Social Security benefits.The only way I can see your employer avoiding taxes all these years is under a religious exemption (see below). In that case, your religious order is required to prfor your retirement.From the Turbotax website:"Qualifying religious exemptionMembers of certain religious groups qualify for the exemption, but it must be a recognized religious sect opposed to accepting Social Security benefits. Some of those benefits include payments during retirement and payments in the event of a disability or at death. In addition, the religious group must have existed as of the end of 1950 and must have continuously provided its dependent members with a reasonable standard of living since that time.The exemption isn’t automatic; you must apply for it by completing Form 4029. The exemption is unavailable if you’ve ever been eligible to receive benefits under the Social Security program regardless of whether you actually received the benefit or not.";"In the USA
are whistleblowers protected by any legal statutes?"
Yes they are. However, how whistleblower laws apply to you may differ, depending on relevant statutes, sets of regulations, industries and/or state. If the problem you are whistleblowing about involves a securities law violation, you may have hit the jackpot.  This is the link to the SEC Office of the Whistleblower: Welcome to the Office of the Whistleblower  "The Commission is authorized by Congress to prmonetary awards to eligible individuals who come forward with high-quality original information that leads to a Commission enforcement action in which over $1,000,000 in sanctions is ordered. The range for awards is between 10% and 30% of the money collected."   So, there's this, in connection with "marketplace misconduct": Whistleblower awarded $14 million - SEC's largest ever.  For more details, there's this: A $14 million whistleblower award last year exposed a Chicago-based fraud. .  Interestingly enough, auditor and compliance officer salaries and bonuses have increased a great deal since 2022. when the SEC started this program, through Dodd-Frank. The types of activities involved are generally related to financial reporting fraud and general securities violations, and it is not unusual for the SEC, the states and agencies responsible for administering various compliance schemes to team up with the Justice Department to result in situations like this: $168 million payout to Johnson & Johnson whistleblowersThere are whistleblower protections that apply to a wide range of public and private employees. They are often "tailored" to fit the particular industry.  For instance, those that apply to NSA and other government security agency employees might be a little different than those that might apply in the private sector.  Generally, though, they all attempt to protect the person speaking up from retaliation and financial loss.  Here's a link to OSHA's whistleblower laws: DWPP Home Page ; a general guide to federal whistleblower statutes from the Department of Labor: Compliance Assistance By LawHere are more federal whistleblower laws, privately compiled, by statute:Whistleblowing Protection Act - Protection For Whistleblowers Here are more, by state (especially focussed on state governmental and municipal employees): State Whistleblower Laws And don't forget the Internal Revenue Service - they've got an "informant award", but in typical IRS fashion it's buried in the fine print: Whistleblower - Informant AwardGenerally, whistleblower statutes aren't well-publicized, for a variety of reasons.  Most public companies (who are governed by Sarbanes-Oxley) have separate internal whistleblower hotlines - they're required to, by the law - to report accounting and financial frauds, and separate hotlines to report employee internal or human resources issues. The challenge in creating whistleblower statues is to properly incent people to do the right thing, not try to cash in or argue for the sake of arguing, but also to protect the person who is trying to obtain justice.   I wish a behavioral economist would do some work on this problem of complex incentives, and get good information regarding reporting behavior, company performance, and the general effectiveness of these laws and regulations.  Most are still too new to know what works, in what industry, with what kind of problem. It's tough to speak up, and it's tough to weed out the complaints and vitriol and hurt feelings from the flat-out injustice.
Do people get paid to tell the IRS about tax cheaters?
If IRS can collect over $2 million (and a few other requirements) from a whistleblower informant, then the IRS is required to give a reward from 15% to 30% of the amount collected. For smaller amounts, IRS can, at their discretion, give a reward up to 15%, but is not required to do so. Upset girlfriends, etc., or upset friends who have listened to someone brag about not paying taxes are one of the ways that IRS discovers people in the underground economy who do not pay taxes.
What prevents someone from lying on a tax return?
One more thing:The IRS gets a copy of all the IRS forms you have.When your boss sends you a W2, they also send one to the IRS. When Amazon sends you a 1099, they also send one to the IRS. When Blue Cross sends you a 1095, they also send one to the IRS. So people who try to misstate how much money they made, or maybe leave off that silly 1099 that was only for a few bucks, or ignore that job they quit in January so really only worked for for a few weeks, or who pulled money out of their retirement for a vacation, etc• those people often forget that all those forms you have, the IRS has too. So this isn’t the old movies, where you’re hoping no one notices your little lie, these are computers talking to computers—someone at the IRS, if only a computer, knows within seconds—I worked with a tax preparer once who said the IRS called her while the people were still in her office! Turns out they were already on their way, and arrived, with guns and everything, before the tax criminals left her office! Of course that’s not normal, but it’s possible these days, and that’s my point.This is why it’s comical that newly working Millennials think they’re hiding their income through Bitcoin. No, the IRS knows about those transactions, and if they don’t, they soon will, and at that point, you’ve evaded taxes through money laundering, smart kid.And even for those things where the documentation is a big fuzzy, we’re still dealing with algorithms. If you are a programmer and have a uniform budget, they’ll know that’s weird. And it’s not humans saying “that’s weird,” it’s computers, who know every programmer in the nation, including everyone who works where you work. If you try to write off your dry cleaning under some logic of yours, they’ll git cha. In the modern landscape it’s not about tagging you with keywords, it’s about big data. And big data knows. If you’re driving more miles than other people with your profession, the computers will notice. Not that it’s a crime, but it’s a data point. If you’re claiming more on health insurance than other people with your disease, robots will notice. If you heard some tax trick on Quora and try it, they’ll notice. Heck, until a few years ago making up kids was a standard way of getting more write-offs. Now that’s comically impossible (but still attempted all day.) Because between the algorithms and the humans, there’s nothing you’re going to be able to do, whether lie or loophole, that they haven’t seen before, mostly that they don’t see literally 10,000 times a day.That’s all I’m saying. Nothing stops the average person from lying except for honesty (and don't cynically dismiss that) and the fear of getting caught. The carrot and the stick. But anyone who’s tempted may need to be reminded that it’s 2022. and your fear of getting caught is so legit it should be rephrased as “the hope there won’t be political will to go after my crime this year.”
How does the IRS track income?
As Michael Dowling states it is very likely that you have clients paying more than $600 per year if you are an independent contractor.  If you are paid via credit card or PayPal, then those services will also file a 1099 with the IRS if you meet the reporting threshold.  If there is a 1099 filed for you, then the IRS computer is just automatically going to try to match that up to a tax return, so if you don't file, you get a letter from the IRS computer asking why.Next if you pay for certain tax preference items such as mortgage interest, school debt or tuition, then you will receive a 1098 form.  If those expenditure numbers are large enough and you don't file a return, then again you get a letter from the IRS computer.If you manage to totally stay out of any information reporting, then at least the computers at the IRS won't be contacting you, but they will send a report to their human counterparts to let them know that you stopped filing tax returns and they may want to look into that.  Assuming you have a bank account it is fairly easy for the IRS agents to subpoena your bank records to see if you have any money coming in or going out that would indicate you should have filed a tax return.Your final risk is that someone who knows you rats you out to the IRS, so they can collect a whistleblower award.
What are the benefits of being an IRS Whistleblower?
Section 7623 of the Internal Revenue Code provides awards of up to 30 percent of the amount that is ultimately collected by the IRS to persons who identify underpayments of tax. When the tax whistleblower makes a substantial contribution the minimum award is 15 percent of the collection. The award is calculated based on the total of the tax, interest, penalties, and additions to tax that is collected by the IRS as a result of the allegations or information provided by the person who comes forward to reveal the underpayment. An award may also be claimed for reporting information about an underpayment that would reduce the amount of a refund claimed by a taxpayer. There is no cap on the size of the reward, so for example, a whistleblower who reports a billion dollar underpayment of tax (including penalties and interest) could result in an award payment of up to three hundred million dollars.More info here: IRS Whistleblower Program
