    How the IRS Knows If You Cheat on Your Taxes

    Those forms, called information returns, typically are records of certain payments you received or made during the tax year that you usually need to report on your tax return. Some of the most common information returns are W-2s, which report wages earned from a job, and 1099s, which report money received for things such as freelance work, dividends or interest. But other money moves you make could put information returns in the IRS' mailbox, too, says Ignatius Jackson, a certified public accountant in Phoenix.

The reason for such confidence: Hackett, 64, retains the backing of Executive Chairman Bill Ford.
