Help in reporting a tax preparer fraud to the IRS

I need someone to give me info or guidance in reporting this tax preparer in my city who, unknown to most of his clients, is filing false deductions and exemptions on their returns (such as huge tuition costs when the client has never set foot in a school) to inflate their tax refunds and then reap 500 to $600 kickback to him per client. I do other things in the area and a lot of my clients, wonderiing why they were getting huge tax refunds, come by my office to show me their returns and that Is how I discovered exactly what he was doing. Some are going through painful IRS audits for past returns
because of what he did and he seems to attract them in the thousands promising "big refunds". Anybody know how one can alert the IRS anonymously so that he won't get more people in trouble?

1. Here you go. How despicable! They're probably all vulnerable people too.

5. Wouldn't you know, you have to select the correct ones out of 9 possible forms

in order to blow the whistle. The instructions on which ones to select are 500 words long; presumably each form may also have its own instructions.

4. Your credibility will be higher and the IRS might actually take action if you use your name.

 

And provide documentation.

When you otherwise report wrongdoing to the IRS anonymously, it is easier for an IRS employee to simply close their file.
