"what can I do when someone threatened me they would sue me if I report them to the IRS"

Report them anyway. If you suspect or know of an individual or a business that is not complying with the tax laws then report them. They will not know you reported them unless you tell them or threaten them that you are going to do that.

Your identity will be kept confidential.
