Dionne Warwick

$1.2 Million Break

In Unpaid Tax Case

EXCLUSIVE

It might be the first time the United States has ever admitted it was wrong -- after mistakenly accusing Whitney Houston's cousin Dionne Warwick of owing more than $2 million in back taxes -- and TMZ has proof of the apology.

Uncle Sam filed a federal tax lien against Dionne back in 2009, claiming the singer owed $2.2 million in unpaid taxes from the 90s -- but THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA WAS WRONG.

The IRS just filed new docs admitting it too, officially revoking its claim that Dionne owes the government the massive $2.2 million sum.

According to the IRS, it made an accounting mistake -- and Warwick now only owes just under one million.

A partial apology is still an apology.

How about the hundreds of thousands of dollars she had to pay to lawyers and accountants to get this straightened out? How does she get all that money back?

This is bullkrap that celebrities are owing millions of tax dollars to the IRS for several years before they pay it. Taxes are due and owing at the end of April every year, and allowing rich people to combine several years of filings to reach an average is a form of cheating. They get to hold their tax dollars in interest-earning investments for 3 years, when it should be the government that is getting investment earnings on those monies like the rest of the population has to submit to. This racket is not only a scam on taxation, it is a scam on every one of your fellow Americans.

I'll never be able to feel or say anything positive about this woman since seeing her performance on Celebrity Apprentice. She is one of the most narcissistic and hateful people I've ever seen. Her heart has a layer of frost on it in that body of hers.

She still seems like not a very nice person. Her stint on Celebrity Apprentice revealed a VERY nasty woman.

This is very interesting. As far as I know, federal taxes from 90s should hit Collection Status Expiration by now, unless returns were filed just recently. This issue might be resolved very quickly. Here are some examples:
