Would the IRS supply sales figures submitted by someone in

Resolved Question:

Would the IRS give a lawyer sales figures submitted by someone in their tax return to a lawyer? Would a court order be required? If not, would they check/confirm sales figures given by someone in evidence in an affidavit?

The IRS generally does not give out other individuals tax information without consent of the party. This is why there is always a section where you can authorize the IRS to speak to someone else regarding your return. These records may be obtainable by subpoena, if there is a case currently pending, certain states allow attorneys to give subpoenas as officers of the court, and a court order isn't required. The IRS could comply with a subpoena.
