Taxpayers Against Fraud Education Fund is pleased to announce our 2014 Award recipients. This year's award winners are excellent examples of the public-private partnership that has made the False Claims Act the most powerful tool the government has in the fight against fraud. Incentivizing integrity under federal and state False Claims Acts, and the IRS, SEC, and CFTC whistleblower programs, has resulted in greater accountability in the private sector, and has retuned billions of dollars to the federal government and the states. Past TAF Education Fund award winners can be found here.
