Dean Zerbe, National Managing Director, Alliant Group

The IRS may encourage more people to blow the whistle on tax cheats under new rules that went into effect this week. A good tipster could receive up to 30 percent of the taxes and penalties the agency collects. Dean Zerbe, a partner at the law firm of ZFF & J, represents whistleblowers. As a Senate staffer in 2006, he wrote the whistleblower law for Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa). Zerbe joined Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to discuss how he thinks the new guidance will impact whistleblowers.

IT Alliance for Public Sector experts say there are two major reasons for their fleeting hope—one is the little time lawmakers have in Washington over the next four months; and second is the continued impasse among the Senate and House over the role of agency CIOs.
