On Thursday, the judge said that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) can move ahead with its efforts to uncover the high-value customers at Circle Internet Financial.

Federal court Judge allowed a request from IRS to issue a ‘John Doe Summons’ on all Circle and the customers who transacted $20,000 or more between the year 2016 and 2020.

Such warrants are a trick by the IRS so that they can demand information from the public.

The IRS also told the court that they need the documents to ensure crypto users are paying their taxes. It is believed that they will issue a warrant on the records to prove the statement.

However, the IRS clarified that they are not specifically saying to Circle.

But, it does represent a continuation of the U.S. tax collector who keeps taking crypto investments more seriously in the year 2020.

IRS Commissioner told that tools like ‘John Doe’ have sent a clear message to U.S. taxpayers that the IRS is working to ensure that they are completely tractable in the use of virtual currency.

Previously, the agency had already used John Doe to opt for Coinbase.

They have fought for the order for more than a year, including the records of 14,000 customers.

Circle Spokesman told that they are evaluating and will be collaborating with the IRS as per court order.
