DO NOT SAY ANYTHING–THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE WILL MAIL YOU A CHECK–YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A KNOCK ON THE DOOR BY A SPECIAL AGENT OF THE CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION DIVISION ONLY TO BE TOLD YOU HAVE WON THE LOTTERY.
Criminal Investigation (CI) At-a-Glance
Be aware, the Internal Revenue Service Special Agent is a trained professional, who has completed extensive financial investigation and law enforcement training.
Once confronted by a Special Agent, at your place of residence or employment, you are not required to make any statements. You have the right to advise the Special Agent that you would like to consult with an Attorney.
Any statements made, be they accurate or even worse, inaccurate, will be included in the memorandum of the interview prepared by the Special Agent.
Generally, you will be confronted by two individuals who will properly identify themselves as Special Agents.
