Many of us in Minnesota use Google on a daily basis and news of the company reporting billions of dollars in revenue is nothing new. But after hearing the news that a $300,000 tax lien has been placed on the company, something just doesn't add up. A tax lien can be local, state or federal, meaning if a person or company does not pay taxes to the local, state or federal government it can place a lien on the taxpayer's property.
Whether we choose to live in Minnesota depends on many factors, including the weather, quality schools, access to social amenities and the ability to find a good job. For some, it also depends on the tax rate.
