LOS ANGELES (AP) ----- Stevie Nicks' flowing outfits and long, blond tresses have gotten the Fleetwood Mac singer in trouble with the tax man. The IRS wants $85,887 in additional taxes from Nicks, saying she improperly took about $270,000 in business deductions for makeup, hair styling, clothes, a home office and management fees.

The case stems from an Audit of her 91 tax return. Nicks' attorney, George G. Short, said in court papers that the expenditures were necessary because "much of this clothing is discarded immediately after use because it simply cannot be reused, given the energy levels of (Nicks') performances and heat generated on stage from lights and physical exertion".
