: I just received a summons (certified letter) from the IRS. They want me to show them my records for 1992-96.
: Are there any suggestions on how to combat this? I know that there people/organizations that might be able to help me.
: I wish I had the money to subscribe to all of the various solutions and choose that which I felt comfortable with,
: but my funds are very limited. Has anyone had first hand experince with this kind of action that might steer me in
: in a good direction? I have twenty days to respond.
Don't argue the facts. They made their move, now you make yours... then it's their move again. You need to write them a letter and ask them which specific statute AND implementing regulation makes you liable to keep records. Then, give them 30 days to respond. Never talk to them in person (like at your door) or on the phone. Send your letter certified, return receipt requested. When the receipt comes back, save it in a file with all your correspondence. For your information, if you are not familiar with the difference between the US Code and the Code of Federal Regulations, read my post below entitled, "USC vs CFR.
Keep in touch, and tell us how it goes. You may have a long wait, because there ARE NO LAWS that make you liable to keeps those records (or even to show them if you did).
