I suggest that you hire a business attorney to work with you through this process and get specific one on one advice face to face. This is a large goal that you have which is great but you need to get an attorney on board now and build the structure as you go forward.

Tax liens you need to check with the state and federal government sites. IRS liens can be searched at the...Read more »
