Can a person receive a bounty for reporting tax fraud or the failure to pay federal taxes?

Yes. Congress passed a specific law that allows private citizens to report to the IRS information that would enable the IRS to make a claim for taxes. This law can be found at 26 USC § 7623.  See also IRS Publication 733, Rewards for Information Provided by Individuals to the Internal Revenue Service.
