Are you struggling to pay your IRS federal taxes and want tax debt relief? If so, the IRS Fresh Start program for individual taxpayers and small businesses can help. One of the 10 frequently asked questions about IRS tax debt relief is what is a IRS tax lien.
A lien is a public record on your property that says you owe the IRS money.
It tells creditors that the IRS has a claim on all your property, including property you buy after the lien is filed.
If a lien is attached to your property, you cannot sell that property without a clear title.
