BAHETT I Washington-(/P)-If you're Judging on your income tax return this year, better watch out for nosey neighbors. The business of tattling to the 7vcrnment on income tax evaders --for a fee--is booming as never before. · ' The Internal 'Revenue Bureau reported today it paid out half a million dollars last year to informers who /tipped · the government to tax violalloni'by business associates or neighbors. As a result of the tips, revenue agents picked up 19,037,846 mo in taxes for th,e fiscal year which ended June 30, All signs indicate this will b« »n even bigger year for Informers Citizens pouring in tips on recurring revenue scandal* are likely to uncover even more tax evasion. Parmenta Increase In the past .three years,' payments to informers have averaged 480 thousand dollars a year, a tremendous increase over former years. For 13 years ending in 1948 payments averaged only $71,921 year. And the $9,d27,846 collected last year because of informers' lips comparts with an average of only two million during that 13-year period. * A revenue official said the, chie motives for informers are envy o: wealthier people, revenge againsi a former boss, informers' fees and just plain patriotism. The amount paid in fees can vary a lot. Some would-be informers have shot in-the dark am turned in the names of known gamblers and' bootleggers withoul any evidence. They didn't get « fee even If agents later uncoverec a tax violation. On the other hand, fees up to $80,000 have been paid for detailed and specific information leading to collection ot up to two million dollars in taxes in a single case. The smallest reward is likely to be at least $25. "Th»t'« My Still" fn one case in Alabama, an informer gave details on the location of an illicit still. He seemed unusually anxious to catch the operator. Asked why, he replied "That's my still--the crooked so and so stole It from me, and I want him caught."
