The Taxpayers Against Fraud Education Fund is a public interest non-profit dedicated to fighting fraud against the government by incentivizing integrity. Through public-private partnerships, TAFEF advances the effectiveness of the False Claims Act and federal whistleblower programs to promote and protect the efficient use of taxpayer dollars. We are supported by our 400+ membership of experienced litigators and by donations from foundation grants, successful whistleblowers, and citizen advocates.

In 2017, the federal government spent $700 Billion on healthcare; the Stark Law ensures that those funds aren't lost to self-dealing. Without significant penalties, violating the law can be written off as the cost of doing business.
