Hecker owes $2.6 million in income taxes, IRS says


Bankrupted auto giant Denny Hecker has been circled by his creditors since last year for money owed. Now the Internal Revenue Service is on his tail too for a hefty sum of cash.

The IRS says Hecker and his wife owe at least $2.6 million in income taxes from 2003 and 2005, according to a May 11 filing. The IRS put liens on all of Hecker's property so if they sell it, the U.S. government gets a chunk of the dough.

Hecker filed personal bankruptcy this month, claiming nearly 1,000 creditors say he owes them nearly $1 billion.

Best of luck, sir.
