The taxman is going after The Real Housewives of Miami stalwart Alexia Echevarria and her politically-connected lobbyist husband Herman.

The IRS, according to papers filed with Miami-Dade County, accuses the Echevarrias of scrimping on their income tax payments by a total of $90,078.44 for 2009.

The agency has requested that the couple pay up several times, and finally placed a lien on their $1.2 million homestead in Miami Beach.
