CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - A Chattanooga man says Leather One Furniture let him down.

It seems now he's out 25 hundred bucks.  Jeff Pemberton kept his receipt for the leather sofa and love seat he bought at the end of September.  But, when he came back to pick it up, he found a notice on the door that stated "The property had been seized for non-payment of Tennessee state taxes."  

Pemberton says he's not looking for his money back.  He wants the furniture he purchased.

He adds, "This is not a small amount of money, we saved the money in a few years, in order to purchase the money."

The Tax Enforcement Division tells Eyewitness news the merchandise has been turned over to Community Trust and Banking Company for collateral.  When we contacted a bank representative, he refused to comment and cut our conversation short.
