How Much is Whistleblower Reward?
That depends first on what type of whistleblower you are and
then on the specific facts and circumstances of your whistleblower
Different whistleblower statutes establish different
whistleblower reward formulas. The federal False Claims Act pays 15%
to 25% of the proceeds recovered from the lawsuit if the government
joins the case and 25% to 30% if the government declines to
intervene in it and the whistleblower handles it alone. 31 U.S.C.
Section 3730(d). The SEC whistleblower program pays 10% to 30% of
the money collected by the SEC in the case (provided at least $1
million is collected). 15 U.S.C. Section 78u–6(b). The IRS
whistleblower program pays 15% to 30% of the amount collected by the
IRS (provided at least $2 million is in dispute for corporate taxes
or the annual gross income is at least $200,000 for personal taxes).
IRC Section 7623(b). The IRS can also exercise its discretion and
award up to 15% of collect amounts if the conditions for the regular
whistleblower program are not met. IRC Section 7623(a). There are a
number of lesser used whistleblower laws as well and they have
different formulas for determining the amount of the whistleblower
The amount a whistleblower receives in the
prescribed range of percentages is usually negotiated between his or
her attorney and the government and is based on the value of the
whistleblower’s contribution and other factors. The amount can also
be set by a judge if necessary.
