A Notice of Federal Tax Lien (NFTL) is public record and is generally filed with the Parish Clerk of Court where you reside. It’s a formal notice to all your creditors that the IRS has a secured interest in your real and personal property. A federal tax lien is usually the “kiss of death” however, there are 4 ways to resolve a federal tax lien – You can request a Lien Subordination, a Lien Discharge, a Lien Release, or a Withdrawal of a federal tax lien, if you qualify.
A federal tax lien will make it very difficult, if not impossible, for you to purchase or sell a home, vehicle and other property on credit. It may also prevent you from accessing the equity in real property you may have built up over the years. However, the IRS has several different options that deal with resolving a NFTL if you qualify. One of these is to apply for a Withdrawal of the lien. Winning a Withdrawal of a NFTL is as if it never happened in the first place! The IRS will consider this if the Lien was filed prematurely or was not in accordance with IRS procedures, which happens a lot!
