The Unwelcome Auditor
Our clients in this case were facing an extremely aggressive Internal Revenue Service auditor who believed that income was not reported on the income tax return being audited. At one point, the auditor issued a series of summonses demanding that our clients allow him to personally interview them in their home. The auditor wanted to use these summonses not only to interview our clients but also search their home.
Moskowitz LLP were able to finally convince the Internal Revenue Service that it was probably illegal for them to try to search a home of a taxpayer in this manner. However, this was not an easy process. In the course of this dispute, the Internal Revenue Service issued summons after summons and even threatened to file a action in Federal District Court to allow them to enter the residence of our client.
