PSI: Waking up to a tax nightmare

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Tracy Allen has been a little stressed. You would be as well if you kept the books for the family owned company and the IRS was breathing down your neck.

"A lot of sleepless nights," said Allen.

The Internal Revenue Service is demanding payments of more than $40,000.

The money, the taxes, had been drawn out of the Allen Industrial Services account. The problem was their payroll company didn't send the money on to the government.

"This was not an investment, this was a service that we hired them to perform for us," said Allen.

The Allen's are not alone. Millions of dollars in taxes have gone unpaid.

We go in search of the company's leaders. From the courtroom to their homes to their offices. Where did the money go?

Watch a "Problem Solver Investigation" Wednesday night at 11:00.
