Marlee Matlin - Marlee Matlin Clears Up Tax Reports

Deaf actress Marlee Matlin has dismissed reports she's selling her family home to pay off a $50,000 (£31,250) tax bill.
The Oscar-winning actress was recently hit with a lien by U.S. authorities and she's working out a payment plan with the Internal Revenue Service (Irs) to resolve the debt, which dates back to 2009.
But Matlin insists she has no plans to downsize her home to pay the bill.
She tells Piers Morgan Tonight, "I've made payment plans. I'm paying for it, and I'm keeping my house. I'm not losing my house and there's no lien at this point that makes me want to lose the house, but $50,000 certainly is a lot of money. But... compared to a lot of people in the entertainment business, who are in millions of dollars of owing money, it's my business... I'm a proud American who is paying it back and made payment plans.
"I work my butt off everyday throughout my career. It's not easy for work to come to me...
"But... I am paying my taxes, and I am paying my $50,000 back. Don't worry, I'm not going to jail. I'm not losing my house and my kids and my husband are fine. Thank you very much."
