IRS Information Document Requests and Summonses


Gain a better understanding of the IRS Information Document Requests and summons process, as well as strategies for responding to IDRs and IRS summonses.

When the IRS begins an examination of the taxpayer, there are two tools that the IRS typically uses to obtain information - Information Document Requests (IDRs) and summonses. This course will provide a nuts and bolts overview of both IDRs and summonses, including an explanation of how both IDRs and summonses fit into the examination process. The material will also identify strategic considerations and provide best practices for responding to IRS information requests. Gain a working knowledge of both IDRs and summonses and strategic considerations that go into responding to those requests.
