IRS Sharing of Confidential Information
When a tax payer is under investigation, the IRS has legal authorization to disclose confidential information to other government agencies, including city and state tax agencies and the department of justice. In addition to this, they have the freedom to interview neighbors, former and present employers or employees and family members. A competent representative will be able to let the taxpayer know his or her rights and provide proper representation in order to bring the investigation to a close by reaching a proper agreement with the IRS.
