Liens & Tax Law


A tax lien is the government’s legal claim against your property.  Both the IRS and the Department of Revenue can file liens in respect of unpaid balances due in order to protect the government’s interests.  A great number of people confuse a lien with a levy.  A Notice of Tax Lien, whether filed by the IRS or the Department of Revenue, may have negative effects, which may include the following:

  • Damage a taxpayer’s creditworthiness;
  • Prevent the purchase of real property;
  • Prevent the refinance of real property; and
  • Prevent the sale of real property without the government’s consent.

There may be ways to avoid the filing of a Notice of Tax Lien.  If a Notice of Tax Lien has already been filed, there may be ways to get it released or to reduce its negative effects.
