IRS Levy

Have you recently received notice of an IRS lien on your property? This often comes as a surprise to many tax payers, who don't understand what an IRS lien is, how it works and how it can be removed. For your information, the IRS has the authority to place a lien on your property if you owe back taxes. An IRS lien will invariably affect your credit rating in addition to giving the IRS legal ownership of your property, so this is a situation you are best to avoid.

While this is usually considered an extreme method of getting payment for back taxes, IRS liens happen to many people across America, and those people are usually unaware of all of the facts surrounding an IRS lien. If you already have found yourself in this situation, there are ways to remove the lien.

Notice of an IRS lien

If you receive notice of an IRS lien, chances are fairly good that you are aware of your poor relationship with the IRS. After all, tax liens don't tend to come out of the blue, but are considered a last minute resort for the IRS in gaining tax money owed to them. This doesn't mean, however, that getting notice of an IRS lien in the mail isn't an intimidating experience. The notice you receive will indicate the amount of money owed in taxes and will usually give you the opportunity to pay the whole amount in full within a certain time period. Of course, this isn't an option for most people struggling under the weight of unpaid taxes.

What happens next?
The lien that is placed against a piece of your property is for the amount of money owed in back taxes. Let's say, for example, that you owe $45,000 in unpaid taxes. If you are a homeowner and the value of your home has been assessed for more than $45,000, the IRS lien will likely be placed against that home. This prevents you from selling your house until the debt is repaid because a lien becomes a matter of public record until it is removed.

If you are attempting to sell your property-perhaps in an effort to gain access to the equity available in your home which can be used to repay the debt-you can apply for a Discharge of a Federal Tax Lien. This may free up your house from the lien in order to sell it. Whatever you do with property that has had an IRS lien placed against it is information that you must pass on to the IRS.

Avoiding an IRS lien
As they say, hindsight is always 100%. If you find yourself in a difficult tax situation, with an IRS lien placed against the only piece of property you own, you may be able to look back and see how you wound up in this situation, wishing you could turn back time in order to resolve the problem. Facing your tax problem head first is the best alternative to being able to wish it all away. However, most people cannot and should not attempt to wade through the murky waters of IRS tax lien laws without the appropriate gear, and that gear is the help of a professional IRS tax help service.
