U.S. Tax Informant Dodged Prison, Now Seeks $22 Million Reward

A businessman caught in a money-laundering sting helped the U.S. prosecute a foreign business -- and now he’s seeking $22.2 million from the government as a reward.

The U.S. Tax Court ruled Tuesday in favor of the informant, allowing his claim to proceed after the Internal Revenue Service earlier denied it.
