Vincent Burroughs sues IRS when agent Dora Abrahamson offered tax deal for sex

A 40 year old man out of Fall Creek, Oregon, has filed a federal law suit against the IRS, alleging that a female agent used her authority to sexually harass and intimidate him.

The man, Vincent Burroughs, filed the lawsuit on January 25, 2013, against the IRS and Internal Revenue Service agent, Dora Abrahamson. The case, filed in U.S. District Court, District of Oregon, Eugene Division, is Burroughs v. Abrahamson et al (6:13-cv-00141-TC), Thomas M. Coffin, presiding.


According to the complaint, Burroughs alleges that he was contacted by Abrahamson by phone – prior to any written notice – and that Abrahamson identified herself as an IRS agent. She then advised that he was being audited and that they should meet. She reportedly told Burroughs that he was “lucky” since she knew who he was; Burroughs did not remember meeting Abrahamson before and apparently didn’t, for whatever reason, mention this to her.

According to Burroughs, Abrahamson began flirting with him over the phone and via text.  She reportedly offered him massages and sent a NSFW (not safe for work) photo of herself in her underwear.

“She told (Burroughs) that she could be a bitch, or that she could be nice,” the suit states. “She said that she could impose no penalty, or a 40 percent penalty, and that if he would give her what she wanted, she would give him what he needed.”

Burroughs had sex with Abrahamson that day, the suit states.

IRS spokesman Richard Panick said Friday he could not comment on any aspect of the lawsuit, including whether Abrahamson was still employed by the agency.

The suit alleges that the government is liable for damages because IRS officials provided inadequate supervision.
