State tax lien - not recorded?

Recommended Posts

We're in Ohio. My husband was, a number of years ago, part of a business in Maryland. He was the only partner not located in that state, but when it quietly folded without paying past due taxes he was the one the state eventually came after. I believe it was about two years ago that he received a letter about a tax lien. I can't find it and we were just in a really bad place at that time and didn't deal with it. I know that tax liens in general are no longer being reported as part of a credit report, however, our county courthouse does not show such a lien ever being filed. (I think it was reported on his credit until they removed them all.)

 

I don't want to contact the state and draw attention to it, but I would like to see what exists. My husband can go to the other owners and try to get them to put in funds as an offer to make it go away, but wants to be able to show them that there is a lien and a compelling reason to come up with tens of thousands of dollars. Lexis Nexis doesn't seem to have Maryland tax court records and I don't see how to search anything online directly through the state. All other records pertaining to our home are accurate and can be viewed online with a record search here in our home county.

 

Is it possible that a lien exists and is not recorded? It would be recorded in our locale where the property is, correct? There's an expired mechanics lien from a trade dispute ten years ago and that's the last thing that shows. (Their attys eventually agreed with our interpretation of the contract and dropped their case; the lien appears to have never been officially withdrawn but is now expired anyway.)
