Boy Oh Boy, that ACORN sure is a multi-dimensional organization. Their work in housing almost bring down the entire banking system. With their efforts to bring in the vote they have created fraudulent voter registration to a level never before seen by the American Republic. But while they bring down the banks and our system of government, ACORN Still has the time to Owe the Government Almost $4Million Dollars in Unpaid taxes.
Capital Research Center’s Matthew Vadum found a staggering number of liens listed against ACORN’s national headquarters 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 ACORN’s address and they were all from ACORN’s tangeled network of affiliates.”
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 affi liates 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.Below are some of the larger liens
Debtor /Amount/ Creditor

The Internal Revenue Service explains its policy regarding imposing and releasing liens:
- “[A] Notice of Federal Tax Lien may be fi led 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:// www.irs.gov/businesses/small/article/0,,id=108339,00.html#release
The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN)
has become America’s most prominent leftwing community group. Little-known until now, ACORN has played a major role in the subprime mortgage mess that has undermined Americans’ support for free market
problem-solving and set off a worldwide chain of financial troubles. It is also implicated in vote fraud schemes from coast to coast. ACORN aims to give America change that socialists can believe in – by any means necessary. It is deliberately organized to avoid scrutiny. But with an FBI
probe underway, millions of dollars in back taxes owing, and a racketeering lawsuit pending, it may finally have to answer for its many misdeeds.
I recommend you read the full report here. It really is astonishing.
