IRS sues Yankees’ Hal Steinbrenner over tax refund

- Associated Press - Thursday, December 29, 2011

NEW YORK (AP) - The Internal Revenue Service is suing New York Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner over what it calls an "erroneous" tax refund of more than $670,000.

The suit was filed Tuesday in federal court in Tampa, Fla.

The dispute dates to the 2001 tax year and involves a refund the IRS paid in 2009. The IRS says the refund claim was filed too late and has sued Steinbrenner and his wife, Christina, to recover $670,493.78.

Yankees spokeswoman Alice McGillion says Steinbrenner's representatives hadn't received any prior notices regarding the matter from the IRS.
