The IRS has the power to issue a summons to a taxpayer or third party that requires the person to produce documents or appear in court. They are typically issued in cases involving tax audits, tax collection actions or in a criminal tax investigation.
What you say to an IRS agent or produce in response to a summons could place you in jeopardy. If you have received an IRS summons, it is very important to respond appropriately and obtain representation by a knowledgeable attorney.
