Owing a tax debt is stressful enough, but when the IRS places a lien on your assets, it can make a difficult situation even worse. A tax lien can prevent you from getting a new loan, is harsh on your credit and credit report, and can affect your security clearance or the chances of you gaining one. The IRS will send you a notice 30 days before they place the lien on your assets. However, even after this time period, there are still some ways to get the tax lien removed:
- Pay off the tax liability in full,
- Enter into an installment agreement,
- The Statute of Limitation has passed,
- You can prove that releasing the lien will allow you to pay your debt faster,
- You can prove the IRS placed the lien in error.
A tax lien is not always able to be removed prior to the tax debt being satisfied. Sometimes, a lien is placed on your assets as part of an agreement you have entered into to repay your tax debt.
