Tax liens are structured by complicated federal laws, but even the IRS makes mistakes, so understanding your rights to combat one is important.

A tax lien is a legal claim that the government can place on your property in order to collect unpaid taxes. The lien gives the IRS a security interest in your property, and it can be used to force the sale of your assets if you don’t pay up. If you have a tax lien filed against you, it’s important to take action right away to get it released. Otherwise, you could lose your home or other property.

How do tax liens arise?

A tax lien arises when a taxpayer fails to pay a tax debt. The IRS will file a tax lien in the public records, which alerts creditors that the taxpayer owes money. The government can and will take away unprotected assets as payment for tax debt. Aside from that, a tax lien can also have an effect on your credit, making it harder to get loans.

How do I get rid of a tax lien?

If you ever find yourself with a tax lien, it is important to take action as soon as possible to get rid of it. The only way to get rid of a tax lien is to pay in full.
