Country singer Willie Nelson, aka "The Red-Headed Stranger," became friends with the IRS in 1993 when he settled a $16 million delinquent tax bill. The tax evasion nightmare began in 1990 for Nelson, which cost him nearly all of his personal belongings (which many fans and friends bought at auctions and gave back to him). Nelson also released the album "The IRS Tapes: Who Will Buy My Memories," and its profits were directed to the IRS.
