IRS Notice 1450 – Instructions for Requesting a Certificate of Release of Federal Tax Lien

IRS Notice 1450 is sent to taxpayers who have a federal tax lien on their property.

Why Did I Receive IRS Notice 1450?

If you owe the IRS and they placed a lien against your property, they will also send Notice 1450 so you understand the steps required to request a Certificate of Release once your tax debt is paid off.

Next Steps

Once you receive Notice 1450, the first step you should take is to request your lien payoff amount. You can access your balance due by:

  • Contacting the office assigned to your account (if known),
  • Visiting the “View Your Account” page on the IRS website, or
  • Requesting a payoff amount through the Centralized Lien Operation (800-913-6050).

Next, you’ll want to obtain a copy of your Certificate of Release. The IRS generally sends this within 30 days of paying your tax debt in full. If it’s been over 30 days, you can check the status of your certificate by writing, faxing, or calling the Centralized Lien Operation. You may also call your local IRS office.

Keep in mind that you cannot request a Certificate of Release until your balance is paid in full or it’s been satisfied through another type of tax relief.
