IRS sues Steinbrenner - The IRS is suing Hal Steinbrenner, co-owner of the New York Yankees, over what the agency says is an erroneous refund. The IRS says the refund request was filed more than six months after the deadline.

The Internal Revenue Service is suing New York Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner for what it calls an "erroneous" tax refund of more than $670,000 US.

The suit was filed Tuesday in federal court in Tampa, Fla.

The dispute dates to the 2001 tax year and involves a refund the IRS paid in 2009. The IRS says the refund claim was filed too late and has sued Steinbrenner and his wife, Christina, to recover $670,493.78.

Yankees spokeswoman Alice McGillion says Steinbrenner's representatives hadn't received any prior notices regarding the matter from the IRS.
