Have you sent a subpoena to the IRS?
The first thing to do is go through the appeal process with them if you haven't done so already.
You can find information on that at http://www.irs.gov/Government-Entities/Federal,-State-&-Local-Governments/Appeals-Process
You can also try a back door approach that we use a lot by contacting the office of your US Representative. They are often very helpful and can assist you in working through any problems.
It is my impression that when a congressman gets involved then the matter is switched to a different unit and they are much easier to deal with than the front line people.
The IRS also has some additional information on appeals at http://www.irs.gov/Individuals/Appeals...-Resolving-Tax-Disputes
