In 1994, Willie Nelson announced that — after 14 years — he was now square with the U.S. taxman. Nelson’s tax bill had been as high as $32 million, but it was finally settled for $16.7 million. To help pay the debt, the IRS had auctioned some of his properties. As well, Nelson made an album called Who’ll Buy My Memories — The IRS Tapes.
