EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — A Lane County man accuses an IRS agent of coercing him into having sex with her by threatening a tax penalty.

Vincent Burroughs filed a lawsuit in federal court in Eugene last week suing the federal government and Dora Abrahamson.

Abrahamson declined to comment when she was contacted Thursday by The Register-Guard (http://bit.ly/14v0zTJ).

In the lawsuit Burroughs says Abrahamson contacted him in August 2011 about an audit. He says they subsequently flirted over the phone and by text messages, and at one point she sent a photo of herself in her underwear.

Burroughs says he initially resisted, but Abrahamson told him she could impose no tax penalty or a 40 percent penalty. He says they had sex at his home in September 2011, which caused a rift another relationship.
