Thought so. Fortunately in my career I have had to research federal tax issues exactly once -15 years ago. This means I know nada about them now. However, last time I checked, federal law has greater authority than agency regulations. After all, it is law that creates the agencies, including the big bad IRS, and is what authorizes them to issue regulations and administrative rules. So what is the authority for them to violate the rules governing a response to a valid subpoena duces tecum? The proper procedure is for the government to move to quash the subpoena, not decide whether to obey it. Is it simply the cases you cited? Never read them and I know you know this stuff well.
