ACORN & Co.: Community Organizers and Tax Cheats

This table, based on public records, reflects some of the largest of those active tax liens and now-released tax liens pertaining to ACORN and affiliates that list 1024 Elysian Fields Avenue, New Orleans, Louisiana 70117 as their address. A tax lien is issued only after other attempts to collect the tax debt have been made and the tax debt is seriously delinquent.

If the lien has been released, that means that after the debtor failed to pay the tax owing, it either paid the tax owing or made arrangements to pay satisfactory to the creditor tax agency. There may be many, many more ACORN tax liens pending that have been sent out to other ACORN addresses.

ACORN $547,312 IRS 3/10/2008 lien 930254

ACORN Community Labor Organizing $306,407 IRS 3/6/2008 lien 930015

Citizens Consulting Inc. $140,994 IRS 3/14/2007 release 893022

ACORN $132,997 IRS 3/14/2008 lien 930768

ACORN $132,109 IRS 3/7/2007 release 892311

ACORN Housing Corp Inc. $125,342 IRS 5/9/2007 release 899820

Citizens Consulting Inc. $118,758 IRS 8/1/2007 release 912881

Citizens Consulting Inc. $118,600 IRS 6/4/2008 release 940211

SEIU $50,000 IRS 8/2/2005 lien 830295

ACORN $33,978 California 6/7/2006 lien 2006221370

The Internal Revenue Service explains its policy regarding imposing and releasing liens: “[A] Notice of Federal Tax Lien may be filed only after: We assess the liability; We send you a Notice and Demand for Payment - a bill that tells you how much you owe in taxes; and You neglect or refuse to fully pay the debt within 10 days after we notify you about it.” The IRS “will issue a Release of the Notice of Federal Tax Lien: Within 30 days after you satisfy the tax due (including interest and other additions) by paying the debt or by having it adjusted, or Within 30 days after we accept a bond that you submit, guaranteeing payment of the debt.” (source: http://,,id=108339,00.html#release)

Are these delinquent Payroll Taxes, or some other Corporate tax that they owe??

If it’s Payroll Taxes, a check needs to be made to each State where they were operating to see if they are delinquent on the individual State Payroll Taxes as well. the states that do have taxes all have different rules and filing requirements, and the sums could be substantial, although a fraction of what the corresponding Federal Payroll Tax debt is (if any).

Very interesting, and worth keeping a close eye on, especially if those debts suddenly get paid off...
