Posted by Jonathan M. McCoy on 28th July 2020

IRS Collections gained every other sport of “beat the clock” in federal district court docket this week. Choose Lynn Adelman of the Eastern District of Wisconsin ruled that the IRS is entitled to judgement in the amount of $657,233.seventy-eight against Anthony Boldin and that there would be an order of sale to enforce liens on his property.
