A federal tax lien is the government’s legal claim against your property when you neglect or 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. A federal tax lien exists after the IRS:
- Puts your balance due on the books (assesses your liability) and
- Sends you a bill that explains how much you owe (Notice and Demand for Payment); and you neglect or refuse to fully pay the debt in time.
The IRS files a public document, a Notice of Federal Tax Lien, usually at your local county courthouse, to alert creditors that the government has a legal right to your property. We can negotiate a resolution of your back taxes where the IRS will not file a tax lien against you, OR if one has already been filed against you, we can get it withdrawn so it will not affect your credit or ability to borrow for yourself or your business.
