DON'T WAIT... Seek Help before the IRS puts a lien on your home or all of your assets!
The IRS will not just go away! Federal Tax Liens can really make your life absolutely miserable. When your taxes are not paid, the IRS files a lien against all of your assets (especially your real estate). This gives the IRS the legal right to collect taxes from the sale of your assets, which includes just about everything you own.
The lien can be placed against you, your spouse, or your company. A lien against your company would seize your accounts receivables. Basically, everything you own is just one short step away from being taken by the United States Government.
Liens filed against you by the IRS also show up on your credit report. They often prevent you from opening a checking account or borrowing against any assets, like your home. The banks don't want the extra work and problems, when the IRS comes in to take your money.
With a Federal Tax lien on your record, you can't even get a reasonable loan to purchase a car. Think about paying 18-22% interest on a car that is already too expensive. You definitely cannot buy or sell any real estate. The list is endless and can really take a toll in your life.
