Paying off tax debts is a fundamental obligation that everyone with a taxable income must fulfill within the timeline determined by the IRS. If a taxpayer neglects or fails to pay their tax debt, the IRS has the right to exercise a number of collection practices that include putting a lien on the defaulter’s income, bank accounts, and other assets. Although you can take the DIY route to resolve IRS tax lien, it is always advisable to consult an IRS attorney who specializes in handling tax problems. If you are wondering how to get assistance regarding a tax lien, this blog post is for you. Read on as we give you a brief guide on how to get assistance for a tax lien.

Collect All Financial Documents

Before acting upon a tax lien, taxpayers must do their homework. For the IRS to remove a tax lien filed under your name, they need legitimate proof that they made a mistake while processing your tax return. It is, therefore, essential to collect all financial documents. From your monthly income slips to the smallest of expenses, every financial document holds importance in proving your case. You can also seek professional help and hire an IRS tax attorney to make sure you don’t miss any detail when collating your financial information.

Check Filing History

There are a number of reasons why a tax lien can be filed under your name. The most common reason is noncompliance. If a taxpayer fails to file their tax returns and ignores the notices sent by the IRS, the tax authority can impose a tax lien. In such a case, it is essential to check your filing history and see whether you have missed filing any of your taxes or tax returns.

File an Appeal at the Office of Appeals

The IRS may make mistakes when processing your taxes and return, which can also lead to a tax lien. If, however, you can prove that there has been an error, you can appeal to the Office of Appeals. Keep in mind, all procedures offered by the IRS involve a hearing. It is, therefore, essential to make all arrangements and be fully prepared for the hearing, if necessary. You can either take the DIY way and represent yourself, or hire an IRS tax lien attorney to represent your case. Having said that, there are two common ways a taxpayer can remove a tax lien; release and withdrawal. We discuss the two ways, in brief:

Lien Withdrawal

For a lien withdrawal, taxpayers must have a bank balance lower than $25,000. To file for a withdrawal, use the Form 12277 to make a formal request to the IRS. Once the request is filed, the IRS responds with the Form 10916(c), which can hold the solution to your problem. If the IRS approves your request, not only the lien is removed, every thread that could show a tax lien was filed against your name is also removed.

Lien Release

If a taxpayer qualifies for the IRS Fresh Start Initiative (FSI), and has a bank balance lower than $25,000, they are eligible to request for the lien to be released. If the IRS approves the request, the lien is removed from the property and/or other assets. Unlike a lien withdrawal, releasing a tax lien will not remove it from a taxpayer’s credit reports; they can, however, consult their IRS tax attorney find ways to improve their credit report.

I would like to thank Mr. Nick and his staff for the superb help that I received from them. My IRS problem was resolved quickly and efficiently. It took 2 visits to convince me that I was over my head. I thought that I could call the IRS, appeal my tax notices and settle on a payment plan on my own. After many phone calls to the IRS, waiting sometimes more than 4 hours with no resolution to speak of, it proved to be extremely difficult and stressful. Revisiting Mr. Nick was a huge wake up call. My account was reviewed, and a payment plan was established with the IRS within a week. I will be forever grateful to the staff who worked on my case and especially to Lorna who listened to me vent while going through this painful process.

I cannot say enough good things about Nick and his team. When I first met with Nick he was up front, honest, friendly and efficient. When I worked with one of his attorneys, Eric B, I was just as pleased. All of the staff there are nice and very helpful. I wish I hadn't waited so long to get help with my issue. Over 6yrs I tried getting through and getting anywhere with the IRS and hardly made any progress. I know this may not be the case for all, and even I thought it would take longer than it did, but 3mos and they had my situation straightened out. I still can't believe it. Thank you thank you THANK YOU for all that you did for me. This is a huge burden gone out of my life now thanks to you. If anyone needs help out there, I know you may not want to shell out more money to get their help but it may just save you in the long run.

During a time in which competent, professional service at a fair price seems to have disappeared, Mr. Nemeth and his team are a refreshing breath of fresh air.From my first phone call to the final settlement of our case with a non-responsive IRS, they under-promised, over-delivered and were in constant courteous contact to make sure we knew exactly what was happening and where we stood.I hope to never need their services again, but, should I receive another friendly letter from the IRS...I know who to call!
