ORDER OF SALE
Judgment was entered in favor of the United States and against Charles D. Kolb, d/b/a Coy's
Cleaning Service (“Kolb”) on October 28, 2013, for the unpaid federal income, employment, and
unemployment taxes, plus accrued penalties and interest, in the amount of $42,977.92. Judgment
was also entered foreclosing federal tax liens in the amount of $297,625.46 against all property and
rights to property of Kolb, including the real property known as 1861 Shellie Lane, Harrison,
Arkansas, 72601 (the “subject real property”), which has the following legal description:
Lot Two (2) in Cottonwood Landing, a Subdivision in Boone County, Arkansas.
Subject to Easements, Restrictions and Reservations of Record.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED as follows:
The Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) Property Appraisal and Liquidation Specialists
(“PALS”) are authorized to offer for sale at public auction and sell the subject real property.
The terms and conditions of the sale of the subject real property are as follows:
The public auction sale of the subject real property shall be made without
right of redemption.
The sale shall be subject to building lines (if established), all laws,
ordinances, governmental regulations (including building and zoning
residences) affecting the subject real property, and easements and restrictions
of record, if any.
The subject real property shall be sold free and clear of the federal tax liens,
and free and clear of all liens and claims, if any, of the other parties to this
action, as well as the interest of Capital One Bank (USA), N.A. (which is
junior to the federal tax liens).
The sale shall be held at a place in Boone County, Arkansas, either on the
premises of the subject real property or at any other place in the county in
accordance with the provisions of 28 U.S.C. §§ 2001 and 2002.
PALS shall announce the date and time for the sale.
Notice of the sale shall be published once a week for at least four consecutive
weeks before the time fixed for the sale in at least one newspaper regularly
issued and of general circulation in Boone County, Arkansas, and by any
other notice that PALS in its discretion may deem appropriate. The notice of
sale shall contain a description of the subject real property, and shall contain
the terms and conditions of sale in this order.
If there are any local municipal liens for any delinquent taxes in connection
with the subject real property, the United States shall obtain from the
municipality a bill, statement, or claim for such delinquent taxes and deliver
it to PALS at least five days before the sale. Any municipal tax liens shall be
satisfied from the proceeds from selling the subject real property, and the
subject real property shall be sold free and clear of any such municipal liens.
PALS shall set a minimum bid for the sale of the subject real property. If the
minimum bid is not met or not exceeded, PALS may, without further
permission of the Court and under the terms and conditions of this order,
hold a new public sale and, if necessary, reduce the minimum bid.
The subject real property shall be sold to the highest bidder, with the United
States (through PALS) having the right to withdraw the property from
bidding at any time prior to the acceptance of a bid if the bids are inadequate
in its opinion. As stated above, the subject real property shall be sold free and
clear of all liens and claims.
At the time of the sale, the successful bidder(s) shall deposit with PALS, by
money order or by certified or cashier’s check, an amount of at least five
percent of the minimum bid as specified in the published Notice of Sale. The
money order or check shall be made payable to and deposited with the Clerk
of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Arkansas. Before being
permitted to bid at the sale, bidders shall display to PALS proof that they are
able to comply with this requirement. No bids will be received from any
person who has not presented proof that, if he/she/it is the successful bidder,
he/she/it can make the deposit required by this order.
The successful bidder(s) shall pay the balance of the purchase price to PALS
for the subject real property within 60 days after the date the bid is accepted.
Payment shall be by a certified or cashier’s check payable to the Clerk of the
U.S. District Court for the Western District of Arkansas. The check given to
PALS shall be deposited with the Clerk of this Court. If the bidder fails to
fulfill this requirement, the deposit shall be forfeited and shall be applied to
cover the expenses of the sale, with any amount remaining to be applied to
Charles D. Kolb’s federal tax liabilities. In the event that the bidder fails to
pay the balance of the purchase price as stated, the Clerk of the Court shall
distribute the deposit as directed by PALS by check made payable to the
“United States Treasury,” and the subject real property shall be again offered
for sale under the terms and conditions of this order, or, alternatively, sold to
the second highest bidder if the second bid meets at least the minimum bid
set forth in paragraph 2(I) above.
The Clerk of this Court is directed to accept the proceeds of the sale and
deposit them into the Court’s registry for distribution pursuant to this order
and any further order of this Court. (See 2(N) below.)
The sale of the subject real property shall be subject to confirmation by the
Court. No later than 30 days after receipt of the balance of the purchase price,
PALS shall file a report of sale with the Court, together with a proposed
order of confirmation of sale and proposed deed.
On confirmation of the sale, PALS or the IRS shall execute and deliver a
deed of judicial sale conveying the subject real property to the purchaser. On
confirmation of the sale, all interests in, liens against, or claims to the subject
real property that are held or asserted by the United States and any of the
other parties to this action, as well as any interest held by Capital One Bank
(USA), N.A., are discharged and extinguished.
When this Court confirms the sale of the subject real property, the Clerk of
the Boone County Circuit Court, Arkansas, shall record the deed in favor of
the successful bidder. The successful bidder at the sale shall pay, in addition
to the amount of the bid, any documentary stamps and Clerk’s registry and/or
filing fees as required by law.
To preserve the subject real property and place it in a proper condition for
sale, PALS is authorized to take possession and custody of the subject real
property, have free access to the premises, and to take all action necessary to
preserve the property between the date of this order and date of confirmation
of sale by the Court.
Until the subject real property is sold, Charles D. Kolb may remain on the premises
of the property. While using or residing at that property, Charles D. Kolb shall take
all reasonable steps necessary to preserve the subject real property (including all
buildings, improvements, fixtures and appurtenances on the property) in its current
condition including, without limitation, obtaining or maintaining fire and casualty
insurance on the realty at his own expense. Charles D. Kolb shall not do anything to
reduce the value or marketability of the subject real property. He shall neither
commit waste against that property, nor cause or permit anyone else to do so.
Charles D. Kolb shall continue to pay the local real estate taxes and other municipal
charges assessed against the subject real property until the property is sold. If the
subject real property is destroyed before its sale and Charles D. Kolb is entitled to
insurance proceeds, the insurance proceeds shall be paid into the registry of this
Within 20 days from the sale of the subject real property, Charles D. Kolb and all
other persons (if any) occupying the property shall permanently leave and vacate the
premises, taking with them their personal property (but leaving all improvements,
buildings, fixtures and appurtenances to the property). If Charles D. Kolb or any
other person occupying the subject real property fails to vacate, PALS, in
coordination and with the assistance of the United States Marshal’s Service, is
hereby authorized to take whatever action that it deems appropriate to remove
Charles D. Kolb or any other person from the premises. This includes that the United
States Marshal’s Service is authorized and directed to take any and all necessary
actions, including the use of reasonable force, to enter and remain on the premises,
which includes, but is not limited to, the land, buildings, vehicles, and any structures
located thereon, for the purpose of executing this order. The United States Marshal’s
Service is further authorized and directed to arrest and/or evict from the premises any
and all persons who obstruct, attempt to obstruct, or interfere or attempt to interfere,
in any way with the execution of this order.
If Charles D. Kolb or any other person fails to remove his/her personal property
within 20 days of the sale of the subject real property, this personal property is
deemed forfeited and abandoned, and PALS is authorized to dispose of such personal
property in any manner it deems appropriate, including but not limited to the sale of
such personal property. The proceeds of the sale of any personal property shall be
applied first to the expenses of sale, and then remitted to the Court for further
distribution. Checks for the purchase of the personal property shall be made payable
to the Clerk of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Arkansas, and the
Clerk is directed to accept such checks and deposit them into the Court’s registry for
distribution pursuant to further order of the Court.
The United States shall provide defendant Bank of the Ozarks with a
minimum of 20 days’ advance written notice of the date of the sale of the
subject real property. Ten days before the scheduled sale of the subject real
property, Bank of the Ozarks shall file with the Court and serve, by overnight
mail on counsel for the United States, a declaration under the penalty of
perjury (see 28 U.S.C. § 1746(2)) or affidavit as to the balance due regarding
the remaining amount of its mortgage. Failure to abide by this order shall
render Bank of the Ozarks’ mortgage null and void, and the subject real
property shall be sold free and clear of the mortgage.
After the Court confirms the sale of the subject real property, all the sale proceeds
deposited with the Clerk of this Court shall be distributed in the following order:
Second, to any municipality to satisfy any delinquent taxes pertaining to the
subject real property as stated in paragraph 2(H) above, to the extent not paid

First, to PALS for the expenses of the sale of the subject real property.
If there are still any remaining proceeds from the sale after distributions have
been made in accordance with paragraphs 3(A)–3(F), the remaining proceeds
shall be held in the Court’s registry pending further order from the Court.
In order to carry out the terms of paragraph 3 above, the United States shall apply to
the Court for a distribution order requiring the Clerk of the Court to make payments in accordance
with the terms of paragraph 3(A)–(G) above.
