A tax lien is a claim made by the government on an individual’s personal or business assets when you neglect or fail to pay the tax debt. It can be brought against your asset by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the state, or the local authority. A tax lien does not give the government the right to seize your property, unlike in a tax levy. However, it does allow them to force you to sell or liquidate your assets to collect what you owe. A tax lien can negatively affect your credit if not properly handled. To help get you out of the problem, in this post we answer four frequently asked questions about  tax lien help. Take a look.

1. What should I do to deal with a tax lien?

In a case where a tax lien is claimed against your asset(s), you can turn to The Office of Appeals, which is an independent entity inside the IRS. Your situation qualifies you to apply for two appeal procedures both of which involve a hearing. These procedures are Collection Appeal Program (CAP) and Collection Due Process (CDP) they both give the right to appeal the tax lien brought against you. You can represent yourself at the hearing or be represented by a tax attorney.

2. How to approach Federal Taxpayer Advocate service?

Nobody likes a tax lien or anything that has to do with the IRS because most of the time it can get messy. In an event that you are finding the terms of the tax lien difficult to deal with or if it’s causing you financial difficulties, you can reach out to the Federal Taxpayer Advocate Service. You can fill out a Form 911 which is a Request for assistance from the Taxpayer Advocate Service.

3. Can my state tax authority help with an IRS tax lien?

If you have a tax lien situation, you can contact your state revenue tax authority to find what options are available to you. The department of revenue in your state can help you come up with installment plans for managing your tax lien. Your state may also have an advocate service that can assist taxpayers with their tax lien issues.  State departments of revenue each create their own rules, so contact the state directly.

4. Can I get the lien withdrawn from my assets?

No matter how callous the tax authorities may seem, they really don’t want to come after you to get the money you owe. You can file IRS Form 9465 which is an Installment Agreement Request. The IRS must allow you to make payments on your overdue taxes if you owe less than $50,000.  They could remove the tax lien from your property (or asset) if you work with them to set a payment plan in place and pay the amount due.

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!
