From: Taylor Amarel

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

I would like to obtain all emails sent to, from, or copied to Criminal Investigation — Don Fort, Chief, from January 1, 2016 to Present day containing the non-case-sensitive key-phrase "whistleblower"

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

A fix is required to perfect the request.

From: Taylor Amarel

To whom this may concern, I am still interested in receiving these documents and therefore wish to submit this appeal/modification of the request:

1.) You may ignore information/records that has personal information of third parties;
2.) You may ignore information/records that are considered newsletters, spam, or junk mail;

For your reference, I am not looking for information or details about specific IRS Whistleblowers. Instead, I am looking for information and records about how the IRS talks about Whistleblowers, deals with Whistleblower claims, or other agency communications with the text "whistleblower".

To help clarify my request, you may limit the search From January 1, 2016 to June 1 2016.
