Joan Collins in dispute with tax advisor

Actress Joan Collins is in dispute with her tax advisers over a bill for services rendered.

Collins, the 71-year-old former Dynasty star, is understood to have taken issue with the fees charged by accountant Citroen Wells and both parties are believed to have instructed lawyers.

Gordon Smith, senior partner at Citroen Wells, only confirmed that his firm was in dispute, saying it was a ‘private matter between us and Ms Collins. It’s in the hands of our solicitors.’

He confirmed that the dispute centred around a bill that Collins was unhappy with, and that Citroen Wells intends to fight the actress, who is rumoured to be looking for a role in hit American drama, Desperate Housewives, all the way.

Collins’ agent, Peter Charlesworth, said he could not comment on the issue.
