"Also very convenient that the IRS targeted almost exactly the amount that Altaba had in the bank."

My guess is it's the other way round. The IRS said that we think you owe us $12.7bn, so don't go giving it away before the bill arrives. So they were perfectly able to disburse the rest, but the remainder couldn't be disbursed until the final bill had been resolved.
