IRS Funding Could Revive Flagging Whistleblower Program

Phillips & Cohen partner Edward “Ned” Arens tells Law360 that the IRS’s whistleblower program could be revived with funding from the Inflation Reduction Act if it is used for adding staff in the Whistleblower Office who handle claims and make award decisions.

When wait times for awards are longer than 11 years, that could dissuade whistleblowers from coming forward, Arens said.

The whistleblower program “always had great potential,” he said. “I think there’s still a lot of room for growth.”
