What is an IRS Tax Lien?
The last entity you want to owe money to is the IRS. They can be very hardcore when it comes to getting what is owed to them. They can issue and file a tax lien and that means they can freeze and seize your assets. This includes your paycheck, your bank accounts, your home, your car, and more. They play hard ball so you have to do all you can to avoid an IRS tax lien.
The IRS isn’t the bad guy though as they often get the reputation for being. Instead, they are doing their job by filing a tax lien to make sure you pay your back taxes. If you are having trouble paying them, you need to take measures to resolve your unpaid back taxes. They are willing to work a resolution for taxpayers in financial hardships.
However, if you ignore them don’t be surprised if they issue an IRS tax lien. This type of lien can be applied against a person or against a business. If it is against and individual, any joint assets they have with a spouse can be taken. If it is against a business, the assets for all involved in it may be frozen. It does depend on the structure of the business though.
IRS Lien vs. Other Liens
You may be in dire straits right now when it comes to your financial situation. If that is the case, you may have plenty of liens on the horizon. The IRS usually takes precedence though over all of them. This is because of their status. Any competing liens would be prioritized underneath them as taxes are priority debts.
The IRS lien can remain in place until the entire amount due is paid in full or 10 years has passed. No one wants to have their IRS debt hanging over them for a full decade. There are also circumstances when they can extend that 10 year period too.
