Please forgive me if this is the incorrect location to post this. I am new.
I opened a business in 2003. Started to do well immediately. Made a mistake in hiring the wrong people. Started losing money and had to go back to private industry. Kept the business "hoping" things would turn around. Left the business in 2006 or so...
Found out in 2012 there was a tax lien i had (somehow my address was changed at the post office), I took care of the tax lien. It had started out as a 4,000 dollar tax bill, when I didn't receive it, it 2006 or so, it grew to close to 12k or thereabouts. I took out a loan from my credit union, paid it off.
I'm now selling my home. I got an offer. Found out that they never lifted the tax lien. I'm in process now of getting the paperwork on this cleared up.
HOWEVER, I just found out there is ANOTHER "judgement" lien on the title - it's from "First Resolution Investment Corporation" and the original amount was around 8k. The abstract of judgement says with all the fees and all, it's now almost 14k.
I'm really at my wits end. I found out yesterday. I am supposed to close on this home sale around June 15th (i think that won't happen though). I do have the "Hyatt legal service" through my job, and plan on calling them on Tuesday to get some help.
The business almost killed me. It certainly wiped out my finances, and did a number on my health physically and emotionally. If someone can shed some light on perhaps what I'm looking at to get this resolved, I'd be very grateful.
I don't want to run out on doing the right thing, but I can't pay 13k.
Advice, suggestions, or even words of encouragement are greatly appreciated.
