The Internal Revenue Service began the 2011 tax season hardcore by going after the tax debts of several well-known celebrities with tax liens while continuing to punish the financially compromised and distressed middle-class. With the country still in economic crisis, IRS Revenue Officers are focusing on the collection of delinquent income taxes with a renewed vigor. Rappers and actors seem particularly to be under the microscope of IRS collections enforcement.
The Tax Resolution Institute believes that most high profile individuals and celebrities get in trouble with the IRS and delinquent tax debts because of poor business management.

The famous saying is that there are two certainties in life — death and taxes.

This is the job of an IRS Revenue Officer — to collect back income taxes at any cost. Don’t let this happen to you — contact TRI today to find real tax relief. Others say it: We do it!
