While registering the car, the woman made a shocking disclosure

GRANDVIEW, Mo. – Christie Williams likes nice cars. In fact, she was registering her latest Sweet Drive—a white Cadillac luxury coupe—when she made a shocking discovery that called in FOX4 problem solvers to help her.

The DMV’s clerk in Grandview told Williams she couldn’t register her new car until she paid an outstanding bill of $5,283 for taxes on the second car — the Chrysler 300.

Williams was shocked. He hadn’t owned that Chrysler in 20 years and it was the first time he’d heard it owed taxes (plus 20 years of interest and penalties). He thought the county was wrong.

“I didn’t pay personal property tax on the car because it was a lease,” Williams said. “In my understanding, (Chrysler) was going to pay personal property tax on the car.”

But Williams no longer had any paperwork to support the claim that the car was a lease, or that Chrysler had agreed to pay taxes.

“In 20 years, I went through two divorces, the house flooded where all my paperwork was,” Williams said. “I didn’t have that stuff.”

To make matters worse, the Chrysler dealership where he got the car is no longer in business. Williams also tried to contact TD Bank, which acquired Chrysler Financial, hoping it might still have the documents, but was told the account was so old it was closed, and the bank only Could have provided the vehicle identification number of the car.

She said she explained everything to Jackson County, but that it wouldn’t detract from her demand for taxes, interest, and penalties for the past 20 years.

That’s when Williams called the problem solver.

Most people don’t keep tax documents for 20 years, which is why it’s against the law in most states for a business or government agency to sue someone for bad debts that are several years old.

The problem solvers told the county of Williams’ plight and the problem, saying no one would prove their innocence on that old debt.

Jackson County promised to look into the matter. And it did. In fact, Jackson County even searched state records, which (unfortunately for Williams) showed that the car was titled after him—it was never titled as a leased vehicle.

Despite this, Jackson County officials agreed that the county should have informed Williams years earlier that he owed taxes. Since this was not done, the county waived all interest and fines—reducing the bill to approximately $4,000.

Williams has now paid that bill.
