Help with IRS Tax Problems for Pennsylvania Taxpayers – Tax Liens

One of the most financially disruptive IRS Tax Problems Pennsylvania taxpayers can have is when the Internal Revenue Service puts a tax lien on their property. At the law office of Attorney Len Stauffenger, Esq., clients will get expert assistance when negotiating with the IRS for the removal of tax liens and levies on their property.

A federal tax lien can happen when you neglect or fail to pay your debt. The government has the option to make a legal claim against your property – including real estate, personal property, and financial assets.

You’ll have a lien after the IRS assesses your liability and sends you a Notice and Demand for Payment that shows how much you owe. The IRS then files a public document, called a Notice of Federal Tax Lien, to alert creditors that the government has a legal right to your property.

Tax Lien vs. Tax Levy

If you have an IRS lien on your property or assets, you need to hire the services of a reputable tax attorney before this legal claim against your home or other property turns into a tax levy.

A levy is an administrative action by the Internal Revenue Service where they have the power to seize your property, by any means, to compensate for your tax liability.

Note that administrative action means they do not need to go to court to seize your property. Once your problem gets to the point where it goes from lien to levy, things are going to get much more difficult in terms of stopping the action.

A tax lien does all kind of things to make your life more difficult.

  • It not only ties up all of your assets such as property, securities, and vehicles, it even affects future assets acquired during the duration of the lien.
  • When a Notice of Federal Tax Lien is filed by the IRS, your credit rating can be seriously damaged.
  • If there is a lien on your business, it attaches to all of your business property, including all rights to accounts receivable.
  • Not only are you at risk of losing some or all of you property, you will be unable to sell any property that has a lien.

It is imperative that you take action as soon as possible before things get worse. Attorney Len Stauffenger can help with any IRS Tax Problems Pennsylvania business owners and residents may have.
