Do You Have a Federal Tax Lien or IRS Notice of a Federal Tax Lien?


IRS Tax Liens can really take your perfect life and make it miserable! When your taxes are unpaid, the IRS and or the State files a lien against all your assets. This gives them the legal right to collect taxes from the sale of your assets, which includes literally everything you own including your bank account, vehicles, and home. Tax liens may be filed against you, your spouse, or your company depending on how the tax liability was incurred. Everything you own is in jeopardy of becoming property of the government. Never ignore a notice from the IRS – it can have very serious consequences.


To make matters worse, tax liens filed against you show up on your credit report and often prevent you from opening a checking account or borrowing against any assets, like your home. If a lender is willing to approve a loan for you, the interest rate will be higher when a lien appears on your credit report. Buying or selling real estate is would be very difficult as well. Remember, the IRS can place a lien on your property, home, vehicle, or wages or even go as far as seizing your property to collect the back taxes.

IRS Tax Lien Release


How Can You Remove a Tax Lien?


You Can Appeal the Lien. A lien can be removed on appeal if:

  • The tax debt has already been paid in full.
  • The lien was filed in error.
  • The lien was filed in error and the IRS made a processing error with your return.
  • The IRS did not follow proper procedures.
  • You were going through bankruptcy when the lien was filed.
  • You weren’t given a chance to dispute the amount assessed by the IRS.
  • You wish to make spousal defenses by claiming that your spouse should be liable for the lien.
  • You want to discuss collection options.
  • The statute of limitations of 10 years on collecting the tax debt has passed.

On the notice of the lien, you are given the option to request a Collection Due Process hearing with the Office of Appeals. The request for an appeal must be made within 30 days after fifth day of the lien being filed, or by the date indicated on the notice.


Lien Withdrawal

Withdrawal removes the lien as if it was never there and occurs when the taxpayer’s lien is paid off or it’s proven that the lien was filed falsely. Withdrawal is also possible if you qualify for the Fresh Start Initiative, have entered a direct debit agreement, and your balance is lower than $25,000.

We can deal with the IRS and aid with filing an appeal or requesting a lien withdrawal. Call us for a free tax consultation at 605-646-3585.
