Title company paid our delinquent taxes and now the Tax office does not have the payment. Title company is out of business.

Austin, TX |

Refinanced home and paid back taxes. The title company paid back taxes and IRS lien. IRS was paid but the Tax Assessor's office states they were never paid. We submitted closing statement but they want a cancelled check which we do not have because the Title Company went out of business. We know the title company is insured we contacted the Texas Department of Insurance but have been unable to get a lot of help. Where can we go to show proof of payment?

Interestig question, and it sounds like you've done the obvious things. Someone has the records of the title company, but finding out who that is could be a challenge. The only other thing that comes to mind is that if you know the bank the title company did business with (you might have a copy of a check issued at closing) you could contact the bank and see if they could help you track down the payment.
