Serial whistleblower to receive $2 million from the IRS for uncovering corporate tax evasion. Third award in a row

A Wall Street insider has netted $2 million reward from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for revealing an alleged tax avoidance scheme by manufacturer Illinois Tool Works (ITW Fortune 500). This is the third major reward from the IRS for the anonlymous whistleblower who testified in 2004 about tax fraud schemes as a confidential witness before the Senate Finance Committee under the pseudonym ‘Mr. ABC”. He received $1.1 million in 2011 after rendering information years before on tax shelters set up by Wall Street banks for the infamous energy firm Enron.
