Tax Lien: What Should I Do? 

December 20, 2023

What can I do if I get a IRS notice of a Tax Lien from the County?

Does this mean the IRS is going to take my assets or levy my bank account or my wages? 

The simple answer is the tax lien filing means the IRS says you owe money, and this is their way of protecting their interests. It does not mean the IRS is going to take your assets currently. However, it is important to take proper action immediately.  

The worst thing you can do is to procrastinate and ignore it. That never solves anything. You are on the IRS radar now and they are looking at you closely. It is important to get yourself off the IRS radar. The IRS is becoming very aggressive because their job is to collect money for the IRS.

First of all, we need to determine if you really do owe any money at all.

If the lien is a penalty the penalty can be appealed. Perhaps it is a legitimate debt, however it is not really your debt. All this can be handled by accessing your IRS transcripts to discover the real nature of the IRS debt. Remember the IRS is not perfect, and they do make mistakes like we all do.
