UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
Case No. 17-mc-50857
SENIOR UNITED STATES DISTRICT
JUDGE ARTHUR J. TARNOW
MAGISTRATE JUDGE DAVID R.
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, ET AL.,
ORDER DENYING PETITION TO QUASH SUMMONS REQUEST FOR MAGISTRATE TO
REVIEW DOCUMENTS 
On June 19, 2017, Petitioner Imran Shahzad filed a Petition to Quash
Summons . Petitioner asks the Court to quash the Financial Records Summons
issued to JP Morgan Chase Bank on June 7, 2017. For the reasons stated below,
Petitioner’s motion is DENIED and this matter is deemed closed.
On May 15, 2017, Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) Revenue Officer
Chelsea Sommer informed Petitioner via letter that his request to pay taxes in
installments had been approved. Petitioner’s payment of $500.00 is due on July 20,
2017. Petitioner must make future payments of $500.00 on the 20th of each

following month until he has paid the full amount owed. The letter contains a
section titled, “Conditions of the Agreement,” one of which is:
This agreement is based on your current financial condition. We may change
or cancel it if our information shows that your ability to pay has changed
On June 7, 2017, Internal Revenue Service Revenue Officer Chelsea
Sommer issued a Financial Records Summons to JP Morgan Chase Bank, seeking
bank signature cards, bank statements, and cancelled checks from Petitioner’s
employer, Urban Sedan Car Transport Service. Petitioner states that he
“disagree[s] with the summons” because he “take[s] responsibility of the amount I
owe the IRS and do promise to pay on time.”
No complaint has been filed in this case, nor does it appear that Respondents
have received notice of this petition. It is unclear to the Court whether it even has
jurisdiction over Petitioner’s case. Aside from the fact that Petitioner disagrees
with Officer Sommer’s decision to subpoena these documents, the Petition is
devoid of any detail as to Petitioner’s claims against Respondents.
