Understanding a Federal Tax Lien
A federal tax lien is a notice to all creditors that the IRS has laid claim to a taxpayer’s property for a tax debt. The IRS tax lien is attached to all property and property rights belonging to the taxpayer, including those the taxpayer may acquire after the lien arises. The tax lien is applied automatically after the IRS makes a tax assessment on a debt for which the taxpayer has already been notified but has not paid. After notification, the taxpayer has 30 days to appeal the lien. Two suggestions for removing a tax lien are:
- Pay the tax debt
- Hire a tax professional to help you resolve your tax problem
Working With the IRS
You can work with the IRS to remove a tax lien by applying to have the lien discharged. It is imperative to have a tax professional help you communicate with the IRS. Four possible resolutions exist:
- Partial payment can be made
- The IRS could determine its interest in the property has no value
- The IRS agrees to receive the proceeds from the sale or refinance of the property, or
- The taxpayer can submit another piece of property with a fair market value at least double the amount of the tax owed
