how to report someone to the irs anonymously?

Asked by: megan 8655 views YA Discussion

I know someone who cheats on his taxes( I have no prove of it, I just know because its obvious and he metion it one time) and to be honest it really bothers me because by cheatting he makes more than 125K per year and he boast about it.

I know I’m a bit angry, but at least I want this person to know that he needs to stop or he is going to get into a big trouble. So I want to report him, anonymously of course, but I don’t know how. I hope I could only send an annonious e-mail to the IRS and for them to take action….but I don’t really know…does anyone have a suggestion?

    Without details they will ignore the report. They get vindictive reports all the time and don’t have the manpower to check them all our.

    There is form you can fill out and mail in it is called the 3949-a and you can download it from the irs website irs.gov. You can also mail inquires directly to the irs. You don’t have to put your name on it. Although I think it’s a really low thing to do to someone.

    when you intend to report someone’s negligence you need to be able to substantiate your claim
    you say you don’t have proof so yours would be a frivolous claim and very likely not followed
    you need to report your name, it is not revealed in the search or decision
    and when people are prone to boast about things that don’t sound reasonable it is probably their big mouth letting off steam, this may or may not be the situation
    IRS has their own ways to determine if someone is not reporting their income, especially income of that magnitude
    the fraud line is 1 800 829 0433 and it is a valid number, contrary to another responder’s comment

    The IRS no longer accepts e-mail for any reason. The only ways to contact them are telephone or regular mail.

    And, without proof, they cannot do anything anyway. Mentioning one time to someone, especially someone who is anonymous, is not enough for them to take action. Lots of taxpayers who do not really cheat on their taxes do lie to their friends and mention that they cheat on their taxes.
