Tyler Perry Fired His Accounting Team After Learning That The IRS Owed Him $9 Million In Return


Filmmaker Tyler Perry recently discussed an occurrence where he dealt with the IRS. This came after an audit showed that the IRS owed him $9 million.

The information was revealed at a 2022 Earn Your Leisure Conference where he talked about his accomplishments and challenges he has faced in the past.

“Money isn’t something that I had and nobody taught me that taxes had to be paid. I didn’t go to college, but I paid for Harvard many times over in the mistakes that I made,” he said.

He then went into discussing being allegedly audited by someone from the IRS who supposedly had great interest with how Perry was handling his money.

“So, this audit went on for three years. I’m spending hundreds of thousands of dollars in accounting with accountants for the audit. I am getting so mad and so frustrated,” he continued.

“We get to the end of the audit, and they, the IRS, owed me $9 million.”

Perry expressed that his team was thrilled about the return, but he still chose to fire them, not knowing how they could have missed this.

“Everybody gone! I had to stop going to H & R Block for my taxes at some point,” Perry said jokingly.

“I learned in process, and it’s okay… you have to learn, but don’t let it keep happening over and over again. That’s one thing about me. I’ll let you make a million mistakes, but you can’t do the same thing over and over again,” he continued.

Reports indicate that Perry got the agent from the IRS taken off of the case and a superior later took over.
