My best guess (and without seeing it, it is only a guess) is that you owe the IRS money and they have a lien against your property. The Bank listed everyone with an interest in your home which includes those with liens.
Take a minute and check out my website. You will see that I do things a bit differently than other attorneys and charge a fee which cannot be beat ($98/hr). I would be happy to help you defend your home.

The above is opinion based on very limited facts and not legal advice. This is not a substitute for a consultation with an attorney and does not constitute the establishment of an attorney/client relationship.

That just means that the bank sent copies of the filings to the US Attorney, probably because there is a tax lien on the property. Many attorneys on here, including myself, offer free initial consultations. Best of luck!

Counsel above is correct. There is likely a tax lien on the property and they're ensuring everyone with an interest in the property are served. I wouldn't worry too much about documents being sent to the US Attorney General. Right now the focus should be on assessing your options and determining what your goal in the process is. I recommend contacting a local attorney to discuss these options.
