Report: The McCourts are being investigated by the IRS too
Published April 20, 2011 02:21 PM
The Internal Revenue Service is investigating the finances surrounding the Dodgers as well as Frank and Jamie McCourt ... the IRS investigation was triggered by a number of disclosures surrounding the McCourt divorce. In particular, IRS agents are interested in the fact that the McCourts took $145 million from the team and paid no taxes (certain court documents place the figure at around $105 million, but we’re told it’s actually $145 mil). The IRS is also interested in the fact that the McCourt children have drawn a salary from the team but performed no apparent services to justify the payout.
