If you haven’t been keeping on top of your tax debt, facing a tax lien is a real possibility. Through a tax lien, the government can legally claim any of your financial assets. This includes all real estate and personal property. Surrendering your legal claim over the assets you worked hard to acquire to the IRS is scary and frustrating. The best thing you can do to keep yourself stress-free is to avoid getting an IRS tax lien altogether. Doing so is simple. By filing your tax returns on time and paying your taxes accordingly you’ll steer free of trouble. But, what if you have already been notified of a tax lien? Thankfully, there are plenty of ways to work yourself out of this tricky situation. Below we’ll go over the best ways to get rid of an IRS tax lien.

How To Get Rid Of An IRS Tax Lien

Pay Your Debt

Without a doubt, the best way to completely wipe away a tax lien is by paying your tax debt in full. In fact, after paying your tax debt the IRS will release your lien within just 30 days.

Discharge Of Property

Another option is the discharge of property. In this case, the lien over a specific property is discharged or removed. The purpose is to make selling or refinancing such property easier, thus improving your financial situation and increasing your ability to pay off your debt. To get your IRS tax lien discharged you’ll need to meet eligibility criteria and apply according to the steps outlined by the IRS.

Often confused with the former option, subordination doesn’t actually remove a tax lien. Instead, it simply allows other creditors and interested parties to move ahead of the IRS. This makes getting a loan or mortgage on your property far more likely.


A tax lien withdrawal helps tax debtors by removing the public Notice of Federal Tax Lien. This guarantees that the IRS is not competing with other creditors for your property. But, even if the lien has been withdrawn, it is important that you keep in mind that in this scenario you’re still liable for the due amount. You can apply for withdrawal after your tax liability is accounted for or if you’ve entered an installment agreement.

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!
