Some months ago, we wrote about the fact that singer Dionne Warwick had opted to go to court in a bid to eliminate a tax burden that's been looming and growing bigger over the past two decades. She used the processes of Chapter 7 bankruptcy to seek relief through the discharge of a multimillion-dollar debt that the Internal Revenue Service says she owes.
Her argument, as our Kansas City readers may recall, is that all of the difficulties she's facing now stem from unscrupulous management back in the 1990s. Over the course of years, she says she has attempted to clear the books. Her attorney says she has paid the original amount of taxes owed, and then some, but penalties and interest have always lingered and raised the stakes.
