Oprah's Dislike of Writing IRS Checks


If there’s one thing that Oprah Winfrey dislikes, it is writing checks to the IRS. In fact her accountants bring some tequila for her each time she signs them.

In Morgan’s debut episode last Monday, Winfrey said she only signs checks of at least $100,000 these days. And apparently, she still has several hundred of such checks to sign. Winfrey told Morgan, “It would knock your socks off. Millions are going out.”

Earlier this month, Winfrey has also launched her own cable TV network called the Oprah Winfrey Network or OWN.
