Avoiding or Getting Rid of Tax Liens & Distraint Warrants
With Our Tax Attorneys in Vancouver
Tax liens on property you own can hurt you in multiple ways. If the lien is against real estate, it may keep you from selling the property or using it as collateral for a loan. Problems also arise with liens against bank accounts or against your wages.
What Can You Do to Avoid or Clear up a Lien?
A tax lien does not actually take your property; under federal tax law, it is a tax levy which does that. But, a lien paves the way for the taking to happen so that the government can collect on your unpaid taxes.
Keep in mind, however, that a federal tax lien cannot be imposed unless the IRS follows strict procedural requirements. These requirements include sending a notice of federal tax lien (NFTL). As a taxpayer, you have certain rights of appeal and collections due process before this can happen.
Even if a lien has already been imposed, there are steps you can take to get it removed. One of those is to make an arrangement with the revenue agency to resolve your tax debt. There are also procedures in place for the discharge, removal, or subordination of tax liens.
