Common Questions About IRS Tax Lien

Q: What is a tax lien?
Any action from the IRS can be daunting, especially when your possessions are at stake. A federal or state tax lien is the government’s claim against any property that you own or that you obtain while you have an outstanding debt. This secures the IRS’s interest in your assets (both personal and business), including real estate, property, and financial, should you fail to resolve the liability in question.
Q: How do tax liens work?
After the IRS puts your balance on the books and sends you a bill outlining your taxes due and you do not fully pay the debt in time, the IRS will file a Notice of Federal Tax Lien. This document will let creditors know that the government has a right to your assets and property. Unlike an IRS tax levy, a lien does not involve immediate asset-seizure or wage garnishment; however, the lien will need to be addressed if you sell real estate or other property where a title search is customary or if the buyer is aware of the lien.
Q: Are tax liens public record?
Yes, the Notice of Federal Tax Lien issued by the IRS is public record.
Q: Do tax liens affect my credit?
Federal tax liens are no longer considered in a credit score.
Q: When do tax liens expire?
The IRS has 10 years from the date of assessment to collect on your tax debt, so you won’t necessarily see a Notice of Federal Tax Lien letter right away (but consider this a possibility if you’re aware of an existing tax debt).
Q: Will a tax lien affect buying a car?
If your IRS tax lien is included in your credit report when you go to purchase a car, it could leave you with poor rates and terms or, even worse, keep you from being eligible for an auto loan.
Q: Can a state tax lien prevent employment?

Your tax liens may show up on any background checks that potential employers run on you, depending on the state you’re in and the job you’re applying for. While this may not be a big deal to some employers, others may view your credit history as a gauge for trustworthiness and responsibility.

Also, if you’re applying for a job that require security clearances, delinquent debt can be considered a security risk. If you have a federal or state tax lien, any job with access to security or sensitive information may be out of the question for you. Your best bet is to contact a tax professional before your lien affects your employment and livelihood.
