The bottom line is that the IRS will get its money. Regardless of whatever station you assume in life; if you owe them money, they will get it. Once or twice a year we hear a story about a random celebrity being in trouble for some sort of tax evasion. If anything, the publicity generated from these stories is just another reminder that no matter whom you are. Recently, MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry and her husband, James Perry had an IRS tax lien filed against them for the amount of $70,000 in delinquent taxes.
On April 6th the IRS filed a tax lien on the Perrys for their outstanding taxes, dating back form 2013. Harris-Perry was reported to have not known about the tax lien but knew about the debt and had paid $21,721 up until the lien was filed.
