Yesterday the Internal Revenue Service voluntarily dismissed its tax claim against Greg Lindberg, just weeks after the fact of the claim itself made headlines.

In its dismissal filing (United States v. Greg Lindberg U.S. District Court Case No. 1:22-cv-00911-CCE-JEP), the attorneys for the IRS noted since Greg Lindberg had not ever been formally served in the case, they can dismiss the action without a court order.

While the initial filing generated several headlines including claims the IRS was pursuing “millions” held in foreign bank accounts, this was not true, according to a Lindberg spokesperson.

“The now-dismissed case was a $45,000 collection matter that was missed by the payables team because notices were sent to an old address,” according to Lindberg spokesperson Susan Estrich.
