Hope springs eternal with big payouts for some IRS whistleblowers, but not for one CPA who tried to expose his client recently by blowing the whistle on him for tax cheating. (Cohen, 139 TC No. 12).
The CPA turned his client in, but the IRS failed to bring any enforcement action. Unsatisfied with the Service's inaction (stiffing him for his valuable insider information), the relentless bean-counter tattled directly to the Tax Court! The Tax Court also refused enforcement, and he went away empty handed. Undoubtedly, he lost that client and every other client he had.
