EAST ST. LOUIS – The federal government is seeking to enforce a summons the Internal Revenue Service sent to an individual earlier in 2017.
United States of America filed a petition to enforce Internal Revenue Service summons on Dec. 21 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois against Frederick B. Cavins.
According to the complaint, on July 26, 2017, IRS Officer Elaine Olds issued a summons to the defendant that required him to appear at the IRS office to provide material relating to the investigation into the collection of tax liabilities for the Form 1040 for the calendar periods ending Dec. 31, 2010, Dec. 31, 2011, and Dec. 31, 2012, and the Form CIVPEN specifically the Trust Fund Recovery Penalty for the quarterly periods ending Dec. 31, 2010 and Dec. 31, 2011.
The plaintiff holds Cavins responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to appear in IRS office in response to the summons, failed to provide any of the summoned material and failed to submit documentation on the non-responsive summons.
The plaintiff seeks to enter final judgment and enforcement order, award of costs, and grant such other and further relief as it deems just and proper. It is represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney Nathan E. Wyatt in Fairview Heights.
