What is an IRS summons, and what should I do if I receive one in Oklahoma?

An IRS summons is a written communication from the federal Internal Revenue Service that requires your prompt response. Generally, an IRS summons is issued when the IRS agent or IRS revenue officer assigned to your case believes that you are failing to provide requested information or falsifying information that is important to your case.

If you fail to respond to an IRS summons, according to the options described in the document, then the IRS may have the opportunity to go to federal court and to request that the court hold you in contempt of court. Accordingly, it is important not to ignore the IRS summons; take appropriate actions to protect yourself if a summons has been issued.

As an Oklahoma taxpayer, you may not know exactly what you should do if you get an IRS summons. You may have never received a summons before.
