The Effective Local Alternative To Out-Of-State Tax Resolution Firms

Federal Tax Liens

A Notice of Federal Tax Lien is filed in the county recorder’s office where a taxpayer lives.  The two main reasons the IRS uses this collection enforcement tool is as follows:  (1) A Notice of Federal Tax Lien protects the governments interest by publicly notifying creditors that the IRS has priority in collecting it’s debt; and (2) to encourage a taxpayer to come to the table and begin to resolve his/her tax liability.  Once a taxpayer has a Federal Tax Lien filing, their credit score may be affected by 50-100 points.  This negative impact on credit increases the cost of borrowing, and can prevent the ability to borrow/enter into contracts like leases.

Do not ignore a Notice of Federal Tax Lien it is a serious matter especially if it is signed by a local Revenue Officer. Once a Federal Tax Lien is filed, a taxpayer is given 30 days to file a Collection Due Process Hearing Request to Appeal the lien filing. These Appeal rights can be very important to the resolution/final outcome of a case.
