Understanding Federal Tax Liens

A federal tax lien is the government’s legal claim against your property when you fail to pay a tax debt. The lien protects the government’s interest in all your property, including real estate, personal property, and financial assets.

This lien comes into effect the moment the IRS assesses your tax liability and sends you a notice and demand for payment. The reach of a federal tax lien is extensive, covering all current and future assets until the liability is satisfied or the collection statute expires.

Impact of a Federal Tax Lien

The consequences of a federal tax lien are far-reaching, affecting your ability to sell or use your assets as collateral. The lien:

  • Attaches to all your current and future property and rights to property.
  • Can significantly harm your credit rating.
  • May make it challenging to obtain financing or sell your property.

Navigating the Resolution of Tax Liens

Immediate Actions to Take

If you are faced with a federal tax lien, taking swift action is imperative. The steps you choose can have a significant impact on your financial well-being and the resolution process. Options include:

  • Paying the Tax Debt in Full: The quickest way to release a federal tax lien is by paying the tax liability in full.
  • Setting up a Payment Plan: Entering into an installment agreement with the IRS may lead to the withdrawal of the lien, under certain conditions.
  • Applying for a Discharge of the Lien: In some cases, property may be discharged from the lien, allowing for its sale or refinancing.
  • Subordination of the Lien: This does not remove the lien but allows other creditors to move ahead of the IRS, which may make it easier to get a loan or mortgage.
  • Withdrawal of the Lien: The IRS may withdraw a lien if it facilitates the collection of the tax or if it’s in the best interest of the taxpayer and the government.
