An IRS and state tax lien can be a scary situation! However, a lien is different from a tax levy . A tax levy actually takes your property or assets, whereas a tax lien secures the government’s interest in your property.
What Should I Do?
First and foremost, do not ignore your tax notices, such as a Notice of Federal Tax Lien. Even if you can’t pay your tax liability, responding to a notice before the due date will prevent a lot of future headaches. Please keep the following in mind:
- We can help you with making payment arrangements with the IRS and state tax authorities to help you settle your debt over time
- If you disagree with the amount of tax owed, we can determine if there are opportunities to reduce or dispute your tax liability
How Will A Tax Lien Affect Me?
A tax lien is a claim on your assets. It puts your creditors on notice that the IRS or state tax authority has a claim on your assets.
It attaches to all assets, personal or business, (such as real estate, securities, vehicles), as well as future assets acquired in the period of the duration of the lien.
This gives the IRS and/or state tax authority the legal claim to collect your tax liability from the sale of any of your assets.
A tax lien is just one of the many collection weapons at the disposal of the IRS and state tax authorities. Once an IRS lien or state lien arises, it generally won’t be released until you’ve paid all tax, penalties and interest in full.
