The progress of the new IRS Whistleblower Program has been a subject of great interest of this whistleblower lawyer blog. I would like to congratulate two fellow tax whistleblower attorneys, Erika Kelton of Phillips & Cohen, LLP, and Paul D. Scott of the Law Offices of Paul D. Scott, for their contributions to its progress.
Last September, I had the pleasure of appearing with them, IRS Whistleblower Office Director Stephen Whitlock, and Professor Dennis Ventry in a panel discussion in Washington to explain the new IRS Whistleblower Program at the Taxpayers Against Fraud annual conference. Since then, Erika and Paul have continued to work hard on the IRS Whistleblower Committee of TAF, and have contributed greatly to the development of the new IRS Whistleblower “guidance.”
Their contributions to making the new program a success should be recognized! Thank you, Erika and Paul.
