How To Report Someone To The IRS

If you know anyone who is committing tax fraud, you are probably wondering how to report someone to the IRS. You can report both individuals or a business for tax fraud. Any type of tax fraud is illegal and should be reported immediately.

To report someone to the IRS, you may need:

  • computer
  • printer
  1. Download a form. To report someone to the IRS, visit the IRS website and download a form 3949-A. This form is used to report a company or individual suspected of not complying with tax laws. After you download the form you will need to print it so that you can fill in the proper information. Once the form is completed it should be mailed to Internal Revenue Service, Fresno, CA 93888. This form should be filled out as accurately as possible to ensure the IRS can take the proper steps to resolve the issue. When reporting someone to the IRS, it is crucial to give only accurate and true information.
  2. Send a letter. If you do not have access to a printer, you can also write a letter to the IRS. The letter should have very specific information. When you write the letter, you will need to include the name and address of the person or business that you are reporting. You will also need the taxpayer identification number or social security number of the person that you are reporting. When reporting someone to the IRS, you will need to inform them of the alleged violation. You will also need to let the IRS know how you became aware of the violation.
