comment Line tester reads power to 220V outlet when the breaker is off
My tester isn't anything fancy, something I picked up from Lowes where you just touch it to a line and it beeps if the line is hot. I know for sure the line was wired to a single breaker (20A double pole). I disconnected both wires from the breaker, the ground and the common and pulled the wire entirely out of the service panel. At this point I knew the wire was not hot and proceeded to remove the outlet. Thanks for a great answer!

I assume it's the correct breaker because I traced the wire running from the outlet to the service panel to the breaker.
