OTR Provides Taxpayers With a New Option to Report Tax Fraud and Abuse; Referral Form D-3949A

Friday, August 11, 2017

In a continuing effort to ensure individuals and businesses comply with the District’s tax statutes, the Office of Tax and Revenue (OTR) has established a new fraud referral form, Tax Fraud Information Referral D-3949A, for taxpayers and practitioners to report tax related activities that they believe are in violation of DC tax laws.

The form can be used to report suspected illegal activity, such as:

  • Failure to file tax returns
  • Stolen refunds
  • Failure to pay or correctly report taxes
  • False Schedule H returns
  • Claiming of false dependents
  • Fraudulent DC employee withholding allowance certificate (Form D-4)
  • Fraudulent employer withholding tax statement (Form W-2)
  • Fraudulent returns and return preparation schemes
  • Erroneous claims for real property and tax abatement programs
  • Sale of Social Security numbers for dependents
  • Tax evasion activity
  • Unlicensed businesses
  • Unrecorded payments to employees
  • Unreported income
  • Inappropriate actions by Office of Tax and Revenue employees

The OTR’s Criminal Investigation Division, who operates the Tax Fraud Hotline, will no longer accept alleged tax law violation referrals over the phone. Persons submitting reports can either provide their name or remain anonymous.
