When someone fails to pay their income taxes, the IRS may claim the person’s property as payment. This practice is known as a tax lien. Tax liens can be placed on any asset, including homes, cars, bank accounts and much more. The IRS usually sells what they seize in order to cover the person’s tax debts. It’s obviously important to have an experienced tax lien attorney on your side when dealing with the IRS. An experienced lawyer knows that while the IRS may want payment for all your back taxes, it is possible to come to an agreement where a tax lien can be removed.
