“So far, the new incentives have been effective. The IRS has received tips from about 476 informants identifying 1,246 taxpayers in fiscal year 2008, the first full year the program was implemented.”

This does not sound like very much when you also see that 13% of the population now think that evading taxes is ok. Moreover, the fact that this number has gone up from 9% (about a 40% increase) seems like the more interesting fact. The rate of evasion could exceed the enforcement efforts as a wave of civil disobedience is triggered by tax increases.
