When the IRS files a notice of Federal Tax Lien for an unpaid tax liability, they file the notice at the county recorder’s office in the county where an individual lives, where the business operates and wherever they find real property located. The tax lien attaches to the ownership interest the taxpayer has and generally speaking, the asset cannot be disposed of without addressing the tax lien. The lien is filed to protect the government’s interest in a specific asset and it is one way the IRS competes with other creditors for your assets.
There are unique situations that will allow for the release of a Federal Tax Lien when it is in the best interest of the government and the taxpayer to do so. Tax liens will also be released when a tax debt is fully satisfied.
It takes someone with extensive knowledge and experience to navigate through the complexities of Federal Tax Liens. I acquired that knowledge and experience while working for the IRS for 18 years as a Revenue Office in collections.
