The title of your thread is "Where to Find Tax Liens?"
The answer is: at your county courthouse.
Cavu, the fact that CU answered your question several times, isn't cause for you to behave like a petulant child.
The fact is that people who come here for help need help in more ways than one.
Giving them direction in where to look is only part of the equation. Getting them used to the idea of thinking in legal language is the biggest favor that can be done.
If somebody runs away from DB because CU or another matter of fact poster hurt their widdle feelings, what on earth will happen when they, as pro se, encounter the slime that are collection attorneys?
I got slapped a few times by CU when I first started. It startled me, because I was used to more touchy feely fora.
But as I learned to wade through the legalities of these issues, I appreciated the specificity of his manner.
Why DON'T you want to go to your county courthouse?
I assume that you realize that any person you talk with at the IRS has NO liability for giving you false information.
I'm not assuming that they did so. But I'm not assuming that they did not, either.
I have to second this post.
CAVU, ultimately you've listed the possible reasons that guy sent you that note. And it is possibly a way for him to drum up business.
The best, and really only thing for you to do is make absolute certain that there is no lien against you.
If your state has a Dept of Financial institutions, check there. In wisconsin sometimes liens of certain types are there.
You already called the IRS...and while that's good, let me ask this. DO YOU TRUST THEM TO DO WHAT IS IN YOUR BEST INTERESTS? If you answer yes to that question then you are done. If not, then you need to verify. And verification happens at the courthouse. (most likely).
You should expect to have your rant moderated shortly. Funny enough, I had posted a somewhat similar rant to CU a while back that was quickly taken down. So let me offer a little advice.
Yes CU can come across as a jerk and you'll get slapped around a bit as another poster put it. But before you get all sensitive and cry like a baby, which is precisely what I did. You have to ask yourself why the person posts that way. And here, on this board is is almost always to get you prepared.
You may not like it. You may not like CU. You don't have to. You just have to understand that if you are ever pro se going up against an arrogant jerk of an attorney and possibly judge...its folks like CU that got you ready for that encounter.
