UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA Harold D. L., ) Sherrie K. L., ) ) Plaintiffs/Counterdefendants, ) v. ) CIVIL CASE NO: 1:08-cv-0xxx ) UNITED STATES, ) ) Defendant/Counterclaimants. ) _______________________________________)
This is the reply to the following questions that we have been asked to answer.
Question 1: Please state whether Harold D. L. disputes that he owes the income taxes as alleged in paragraph 60 of the United States’ Answer and Counterclaim and, if so, please “state the basis” for why he believes he is not liable for the income taxes, penalties and interest.
This question is really and truly not an issue and is definitely one hundred percent irrelevant in this case. The IRS is required to inform me somehow so I would know the IRS was going to put a lien on my home. I have thought this over and over and I do not recall the IRS sending me anything, no letter, no phone call, nothing. I didn’t know anything about these liens until we went to close on our home.
Question 2: Please state whether Harold D. L. disputes that he owes the frivolous return penalties that were assessed under 26 U.S.C. § 6702 as alleges in paragraph 66 of the United States’ Answer and Counterclaim and, if so, please “state the basis” for why he believes he is not liable for the frivolous return penalties.
This question again is really and truly not an issue and is definitely one hundred percent irrelevant in this case. The issue is the IRS is suppose send us something so we would know in advance that the IRS was going to put a lien on our home. The IRS didn’t send us anything. This whole process changed my wife and not for the better. She is not the same and she doesn’t look at life like she used to. The IRS basically killed her somehow. She was looking forward to being with her father and she lost her relationship with him. It has really hurt her in more ways than one. It is hard for me to explain. These liens are not even filed by the “Laws of the State of Florida or in the Recorder of Deeds in Washington D.C. like the law says. I have had no “Due Process of Law” to take my property. My rights have been violated.
Question 3: Please state whether Sherrie K. L. disputes that she owes the frivolous return penalties that were assessed under 26 U.S.C. § 6702 as alleged in paragraph 72 of the United States’ Answer and Counterclaim and, if so, please “state the basis” for why she believes she is not liable for the frivolous return penalties.
I also do not think this question has any bearing on this case at all. The issue in this case is about the IRS sending Harold and me some kind of notice before they put a lien on our home. I do not remember receiving anything in the mail, left at our home, or anything signed by a judge to take our property. A phone call would have even been nice or even a visit. These liens were not even filed by the “Laws of the State of Florida.” It is about proper procedure on the part of the IRS, and Proper Due Process.
If I would have known about these liens I surely wouldn’t have went through all the trouble I did to pack up everything we owned and place our home on the market to sell, plus all the letter writing to different people for help and then to file a lawsuit. I have better things to do with my time. If we had not went to the closing on our home we still to this day we would not know; we had not just one lien on our home, but five of them!
It is really sad. My husband fought in Viet Nam for freedom for this country and without “Due Process of Law”, his property is taken from him. I don’t understand how this could happen.
Question 4: Please identify every document that supports the defense that you raised in your responses to interrogatories 1 through 3.
I have sent my attorney copies of everything you sent me regarding my taxes. All we ever got is REMINDER YOUR TAXES ARE DUE or REMINDER YOU OWE PAST DUE TAXES.
Question 5: Please identify every document that you have received from, or submitted to, the Internal Revenue Service from January 1, 1992 and May 16, 2008.
I have sent copies everything we received from the IRS and everything I sent to the IRS to our attorney.
Question 6: Since January 1, 1991, please state whether you have: (i) declared bankruptcy: (ii) submitted an offer in compromise to the Internal Revenue Service; or (iii) agreed that the statue of limitations regarding your tax liabilities be tolled. If so, please describe the activity and identify the date of the activity.
No we have not declared bankruptcy, nor have we submitted an offer in compromise. We do not understand what question (iii) means.
Question 7: Please state whether you are members of, are affiliated with, or receive information from the group known as the “Patriot Network.” If so, please: (i) identify every person related to the “Patriot Network” that you have had communications with, and disclose the nature of your communications; (ii) state whether you have paid, given, sent or mailed money, gold or other currency to the patriot Network; (iii) state how you learned of the Patriot Network (iv) state whether the Patriot Network is providing you legal advise (v) has paid any of the cost related to your complaint and/or your attorney.
Question seven is really disturbing to us. It is our right according to the Constitution for the united States of America and the Bill of Rights to contract or get advise wherever or from whomever we feel proper to get the job done. I (meaning Sherrie K. L.) have talked to Mr. Robert Clarkson over the phone when I was searching for an answer on how to sell our home with these illegal liens not filed by the “Laws of the State of Florida.” Robert Clarkson told me he was not an attorney so he could not help us with any advice. We wanted to be a member of the Patriot Network because we believe in the work that Mr. Robert Clarkson does. I sent The Patriot Network a donation. What he did with that donation is none of our business. We received no documents from The Patriot Network. We do not remember how we learned of the Patriot Network. No the Patriot Network is not providing us with legal advise and No The Patriot Network has not paid for any of the costs related to our complaint and/or our attorney.
Harold D. L. has never talked to anyone from the Patriot Network nor has he sent any money to the Patriot Network.
Question 8: Please identify all persons with knowledge of facts relevant to this action, provide in detail the facts of which they have knowledge, and the job or position in which they obtained such knowledge.
My attorney, anyone from the IRS who might have dealt with this issue, and Robert Clarkson from the Patriot Network.
We declare under penalty of Perjury under the Law of Florida State and our United States of America that, to the best of our knowledge and belief, the foregoing is true and correct and we thank the court for its time.
