Federal & State Tax Lien Help

Whenever back taxes are owed to the IRS, they make a claim against you by filing a Federal Tax Lien (states will also file tax liens for any state back taxes due). These tax liens are filed with the County Clerk's Office and become public record (and once one is filed you can expect to start being inundated by telemarketers and companies sending you mail advertising their services (what the legal community calls ambulance chasers). A Notice of Federal Tax Lien shows the world that you owe the IRS.  The tax lien attaches to essentially everything you own or have a right in.  The tax lien also covers any penalty and interest that continues to accrue on the periods listed on the notice.   

A recorded tax lien scares off buyers and potential creditors or lenders, making difficult to obtain financing. Tax lien notices are picked up by the credit reporting agencies, such as Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion. 

To rid yourself of a tax lien, one of the following must occur:

  • Paying the tax, interest, and penalties owed.
  • Obtain a Withdrawal of Filed Form 668(Y) by establishing and maintaining  a Direct Debit Installment Agreement (the IRS debits your bank account every month) for several months if you owe $25,000 or less (applies only to individuals, businesses with income tax liability only-no 941 payroll tax debt-and out of business entities with any type of tax debt). 
  • Obtain a Certificate of Discharge From Federal Tax Lien on certain property you are looking to sell. 
  • Obtain a Certificate of Subordination of Federal Tax Lien which allows other creditors to move ahead of the IRS as a priority creditor to make it easier to obtain a loan or mortgage.
  • Eliminating it in bankruptcy. 
  • Reducing and paying through an Offer in Compromise
  • The IRS collection statute expires (10 years from the time the IRS assesses the tax).
