ORDER

 

THIS MATTER is before the Court upon the United States of America’s Ex Parte Petition for Leave to Serve “John Doe” Summonses. Based upon a review of the Petition, supporting memorandum and exhibits thereto, the Court has determined that the “John Doe” summonses to East West Bank and Global Cash Card relate to the investigation of a particular person or ascertainable group or class of persons, that there is a reasonable basis for believing that such person or group or class of persons may fail or may have failed to comply with any internal revenue law, and that the information sought to be obtained from the examination of the records or testimony (and the identities of the persons with respect to whose examination of the records or testimony (and the identities of the persons with respect to whose liability the summons is issued) are not readily available from other sources. It is therefore-

ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that the Internal Revenue Service, through Revenue Agent Cheryl Kiger or any other authorized officer or agent, may serve Internal Revenue Service “John Doe” summonses upon East West Bank and Global Cash Card in substantially the form as attached as Exhibit A and Exhibit B to the Declaration of Revenue Agent Cheryl Kiger, respectively. A copy of this Order shall be served together with the summonses.

IT IS SO ORDERED

DATED: July 26, 2013
