Explosive deal: 100-acres, bombs and booby traps included

Home of former tax resisters has no takers, what with the possible IEDs

The countdown is on for this bang-up deal in a booming part of New Hampshire, as the home and 100 acres of two famous tax resisters is back on the auction block after getting no initial takers when it went up for sale on Aug. 15.

The New York Daily News reports:

The 100-acre property in Plainfield is owned by Ed and Elaine Brown, a pair of now-jailed tax evaders who famously held off authorities for nine months during an armed standoff in 2007, and it may be booby-trapped.

Officials first tried to auction it off on Aug. 15. The minimum bid was set at $250,000, but there were no takers.

The sale of the compound has not only been hindered by the warnings that there may be land mines on the grounds — the buyer would also have just one week to cough up the financing.
