Accounting Today writes about a victory Phillips & Cohen partner Edward Arens won for an IRS whistleblower client in US Tax Court. The decision is a win for all IRS whistleblowers.
The Tax Court has ruled that a whistleblower may challenge an IRS award decision when the whistleblower provides new information in a later supplemental form even after the original claim for a whistleblower award has been denied.
The attorney representing the whisteblower praised the Tax Court’s ruling. “This is a win for our client and other whistleblowers who learn after the award application has been denied that their information may have resulted in tax payments after all,” said Edward H. Arens, a partner and whistleblower attorney at the Washington, D.C.-based law firm Phillips & Cohen, in a statement. “We are very pleased that the Tax Court agreed with our position.”
