Serving a Subpoena on the IRS
Posted 12 November 2010 - 10:24 AM
I am working with a paralegal service to complete discovery, and have no alternative but to resort to subpoenas to show Ex's true income. Ex is self employed, and sole propriertor of her own consulting business that is generating 20K per month income, more than 5 times the monthly income that Ex has declared in her testimony before the Court. Ex has paid cash for a rental property while the OSC for child support modification has been before the Court,and now also has rental income that she has failed to disclose to the Court.
The paralegal tells me that it is a waste of time to serve a subpoena on the IRS for Ex's tax records, that they will not respond. I don't understand why the IRS would not produce the records in response to a valid subpoena. Can anyone offer a qualified opinion about this? I need to move forward with discovery ASAP.

Thanks Mr. Reape. In that case, would a subpoena served on the State Franchise Tax Board have better results, since the tax information filed regarding state income tax is essentially the same as the federal tax forms?
