Public Record Search Tip... Searching Tax Liens in Minnesota
Federal and state tax liens on personal property of businesses and on individuals can be filed either with the Secretary of State or with the County Recorder. Both locations must be searched. A special search form UCC-12 is used for separate tax lien searches. Search fees vary. Some counties search each tax lien index separately, and charge $15.00 or $20.00 fee to search both indexes, but others charge a separate fee for each index searched.
