Andrew Carr and His Client Joe Insinga Mentioned in the New York Times
February 8, 2014: The New York Times has an article from Gretchen Morgenson entitled “Sounding the Tax Alarm, to Little Applause.” The article discusses the difficulty whistleblowers experience in receiving awards from their tips from the IRS. The article discusses Joe Insinga’s struggle so far, including Andrew Carr’s moves which forced the IRS to finally make a determination regarding Mr. Insinga’s claim. “Unlike other whistle-blowers, Mr. Insinga has gone public. On June 25, 2007, just two months after he filed his claim, he and his lawyer came to New York City and briefed three I.R.S. officials for several hours. Among other things, he handed over an internal audit from the bank identifying 94 dubious transactions set up solely to avoid taxes, court filings show.”
