Posted on 10/27/2008 9:59:20 PM PDT by pissant
An intrepid researcher has discovered more than 200 tax liens totaling more than $3.7 million have been filed by the government against the Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now for unpaid taxes since the late eighties.
A tax lien is issued when a person or organization fails to pay taxes and that tax debt is considered seriously delinquent. A lien is only issued after the government makes several unsuccessful attempts to collect the debt.
The conservative-leaning Capital Research Centers Matthew Vadum found a staggering number of liens listed against ACORNs national headquarters at 1024 Elysian Fields Avenue in New Orleans, Louisiana while conducting an exhaustive investigation of ACORN's history and current activities.
I took that address and plugged it into Nexis and did a public records search for tax liens, Vadum said. At least 230 tax liens corresponded to ACORNs address and they were all from ACORNs shadowy network of affiliates.

Only $3.7 Million. Seems like nothing considering the amount of money Obama is throwing around.
That $1200 is not only insignificant but look at the noise made about Joe because he asked a simple question then look at the noise the Obama campaigns made defending the criminal and deadbeat ACORN, it’s pathetic.
Joe asked a question, but if I’m not mistaken, it was Obama that came to his house, not the other way around.
You’re exactly right, Joe was home and BO walked up to him.
$3.7Mill eh....too bad the IRS can’t hire the NY mafia or a bunch of MS13 guys to go collect.
Sounds like a great plan to me as long as they go to the ACORN bigshots to collect it.
Then if Congress would cut off the federal funding it would help too.
Wait a minute; according to Joe the Biden, it should be patriotic to pay taxes, hmmm???
Maybe it’s time the IRS started seizing the assets of ACORN.
Fox mentioned the debt this morning and the earlier Townhall blog.
Typical deadbeat operation. They have no intention of giving up the money once gained.
Owe the government? Why that’s us baby - so we’ll keep it for later.
Not to worry.
I’m sure America’s first “community organizer” President will give
ACORN an injection of cash.
Because, as “community organizing” entities go, ACORN is
“Too Big To Fail”.
ACORN signed up Snow White and the dwarfs - - the FBI's gonna take them far, far away...
