NEWMAN UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE Although petitioner filed a proof of service reflecting that he served a copy of the petition to quash by mail on respondent Randall Zielke, Revenue Agent with the Internal Revenue Service ("IRS") and the relevant financial institutions, there is no evidence to indicate that he served the petition on respondent United States in accordance with Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 4(i). (See also Dkt. No. 1 at 9, 9.) Further, the petitioner's proof of service does not reflect that his petition was mailed by certified or registered mail, rather than standard postal mail, to the IRS or Randall Zielke. (See Dkt. No. 1 at 9, 10; 26 U.S.C. 7609(b)(2)(B).) 2 2
