After receiving an IRS tax penalty letter, he filed liens to harass local officials.
A tax defier was found guilty at trial of three counts of filing or attempting to file false liens against federal officials and one count of obstructing or impeding the due administration of the IRS.
According to court records, Hakim Amal Archible, 29, of Hampton, Georgia, received an IRS tax penalty letter for $5,000 for filing frivolous tax returns. In retaliation, Archible filed false liens against the former Secretary of the U.S. Treasury and the former IRS Commissioner with the Fayette County Clerk of Court in 2014 and 2015. The liens were in amounts ranging from $5,000 to $100 billion and named the federal officials as debtors and responsible parties for Archible’s financial liabilities.
Archible also filed false liens against Georgia state officials. Archible targeted Henry County, Georgia officials, including the Clerk of Court, District Attorney, and Superior Court Judge, because he was being prosecuted there on unrelated charges. Archible’s conduct demonstrated a pattern of harassment and retaliation.
