Lime, you had better make sure that you completed your W-2 correctly, or you could be on the receiving end of a qui tam action filed by yojoe.
The Tax Relief and Health Care Act of 2006, (26 U.S.C. § 7623), provides additional incentives for those who come forward with information about individuals or other tax entities who have underpaid their taxes. The IRS has had an informant-reward program since 1954, but the provision was not used extensively by qui tam lawyers (a.k.a. bounty hunters) because the government was free to deny a reward, or bounty. Under the new law, a whistleblower can file an appeal with the U.S. Tax Court to enforce her right to a reward. This reward may be up to 30% of the amount recovered by the IRS.
It is unlikely, however, that H-Lime has much to fear as the jurisdictional minimum for the new law is $2 million, including taxes, interest, and penalties. Even with his lucrative second income as a professor, it is unlikely that the Lime makes that kind of money.
P.S. As Mr. Lime is a very honest and trustworthy fellow, it is unthinkable that he would cheat on his taxes.
