This course provides a concise overview of the investigative techniques and processes of the IRS Criminal Investigation (CI) unit. According to IRS policy, criminal Investigations can be initiated from information obtained from within the IRS when a revenue agent (auditor) or revenue officer (collection) detects possible fraud. Information is also routinely received from the public as well as from ongoing investigations underway by other law enforcement agencies or by United States Attorney's offices across the country.
