IRS Tax Lien Records

IRS tax lien records are a federal lien from not paying your federal taxes. The federal government can place a legal claim to your assets and property if you don’t pay your taxes or a tax debt. The federal tax lien process starts with documenting a tax balance that is due, then sends you a notice of how much is owed. If this amount is not paid in full in a certain time frame then the IRS will file a document called “Notice of Federal Tax Lien” and is reflected on your credit and to your creditors. At this point the federal government can seize your property and assets. See for more information

State Tax Lien Records

State tax liens are similar to federal tax liens in that if you don’t pay your state taxes then the state you’re in has the ability to place a lien on your assets and property. The process is the same where you are notified of a tax delinquency and then if you take no action then the state will file a lien against you and can seize property or assets. Depending on the state the process may vary slightly.

Additional Tax Lien Records Information

Federal tax lien records are similar in that you must pay your tax obligation or they will come after your property and assets. Additionally, this will affect your credit and your future ability to obtain credit until these debt obligations are paid off. If you are uncertain that you have a lien against you then search tax lien records by person ( see link below ). There you will see both state and federal tax lien records if applicable.
