Liberace's career hits a low point at the start of the 60's, attributed to his overexposure on television and his legal problems from the late 50's. But Liberace continued to tour and perform in concert halls and auditoriums around the country and begins to establish his firm roots in Las Vegas.

$$$$ The IRS questions some of Liberace's tax deductions. From 1962 through 1964 Liberace deducted over $153,000 for items such as jeweled jackets, candelabras and his mansions. Liberace states these items are necessary for him to keep up the "Liberace" image. The IRS allows him $19,000 and requests the rest as back taxes.
