Moore, a conservative tax policy specialist who worked on Trump's tax plan in the presidential campaign in 2016, disputed the IRS claim.
"The IRS owes us money, we don" We owe them money – we had an overpayment of $ 50,000 on our taxes, "he said, adding:" It's been like the revision from hell, we can't get them to close this. "
The dispute said, derives from an alimony and child allowance he paid to his former wife. Alimony is deductible for divorces completed by 2019. Upon deduction of his alimony payments, Moore said he mistakenly claimed a deduction for child support that is not deductible.

As a result, the IRS, according to Moore, struck its full alimony deduction and added the figure for its tax burden, rather than just hitting child allowances.
Everyone told him he said his accountant believes the IRS owes him and his new wife "about $ 30,000."
"We've been in a dispute with the IRS now for years," Moore added.
