  • You owe $25,000 or less (If you owe more than $25,000, you may pay down the balance to$25,000 before requesting withdrawal of the Notice of Federal Tax Lien)
  • Your Direct Debit Installment Agreement must fully pay the amount you owe within 60 months or before the Collection Statute expires, whichever is earlier.
  • You are in full compliance with other filing and payment requirements.
  • You have made three consecutive direct debit payments.
  • You can’t have defaulted on your current or any previous, Direct Debit Installment agreement.

How a Lien Affects You

Assets — A lien attaches to all your assets (such as property, securities, and vehicles) and future assets acquired during the lien duration.

Credit — Once the IRS files a Notice of Federal Tax Lien, it may limit your ability to get credit. Although it does not appear on your credit report, it is public knowledge. A lender, which requires collateral for a loan, will be hesitant to proceed while knowing that their claims would be subsequent to that of the IRS.

Business — The lien attaches to all business property and all rights to business property, including accounts receivable.

Bankruptcy — If you file for bankruptcy, your tax debt, lien, and Notice of Federal Tax Lien may continue after the bankruptcy.

It is imperative to have your tax lien removed as soon as possible. You can avoid a federal tax lien by simply filing and paying all your taxes fully and on time.

If you can’t pay the total amount you owe, payment options are available to help you settle your tax debt over time.
