IRS GOES AFTER TEXAS OILMAN FOR $1.6 MIL IN UNPAID TAXES
The oilman argued that the IRS could not enforce its liens on his investments.
The Internal Revenue Service informed a Texas oilman that he cannot stop the agency from enforcing tax liens against his interest in several energy investments.
Samuel Roden owed income taxes for 2009 through 2014, 2016 and 2017. He paid a portion of his tax debt after selling his Dallas home, but the IRS reported that he still owed $1.6 million in tax and interest.
Roden argued that the IRS cannot enforce the liens because the government did not consider his reasonable Offer in Compromise.
In a court filing, the IRS maintained that it had properly evaluated Roden’s compromise offer, but even if it hadn’t, the tax liens would still be enforceable.
