About Roni Deutch

Roni Deutch, The Tax Lady, is a well known tax attorney who has devoted her entire career to fighting IRS abuse and educating taxpayers on how to fight back.  A respected expert in the industry, Roni is frequently a guest on CNN, CNBC, FOX Business Network, FOX News Channel and NBC Today.   In addition to publishing multiple books (The Tax Lady's Guide to Beating the IRS and Surviving the Coming Tax Disaster), Roni has represented thousands of taxpayers with IRS horror stories, all sharing the common theme of hopelessness, desperation and the paralyzing fear that goes with owing the IRS. When Joseph Stack flew his plane into the Austin, Texas IRS building on February 18, 2010, Roni knew it was time to expose the sad truth about our American taxation system.

About the Film

With a run time of 78 minutes, Death or Taxes takes a hard look at the horrifying realities faced by the millions of taxpayers who owe back taxes, many of whom are forced to make life-changing decisions. Should they pay their rent or pay their back taxes? Put food on the table or pay the often exorbitant fines issued by IRS agents in the name of Uncle Sam? Death or Taxes tells the story of the good, honest people who get caught in IRS quicksand-some of whom are pushed beyond hope into the last decision they'll ever make.
