Tax liens and credit reporting

Connecticut residents who fail to pay their taxes may face some serious consequences. Tax liens, for example, may be initiated, which means the state or federal government can take control of one's property. Tax liens will also be listed on one's credit report, which can cause a number of long-term financial issues. ?

Federal Tax liens Q and A

No one loves taxes. Sometimes, they are a financial burden that some simply cannot afford to pay. Failing to pay can have serious consequences, however. In a previous post, this column addressed the purpose of tax liens -- a punishment for not paying taxes.

Discussing tax liens and your options

When the topic of taxes comes up, one of the inevitable issues that will get discussed is the tax lien. Tax liens are commonly used by the IRS, but they can also be used by other parties and individuals. So what is a tax lien and how should you proceed if you are unfortunately targeted by one such a lien?

Can one's credit score be restored after a tax lien filing?

Being on the receiving end of a federal tax lien can be unwelcome, for a variety of reasons. The lien will show up on an individual’s credit history check, with the likely result being either denied credit or qualifying for new credit only under an exorbitantly high rate of interest. A federal tax lien may also last for up to ten years, although the IRS generally will release it within 30 days of receiving payment of the tax debt at issue.

Is the IRS getting slapdash with federal tax lien filings?

As we discussed in a recent post, the IRS is bound by certain notice procedures regarding a federal tax lien. Before the Notice of Federal Tax Lien is filed, the IRS typically must assess the liability, send a Notice and Demand for Payment, and allow the taxpayer 10 days to pay the disputed amount.

What are a taxpayer's procedural rights against an IRS tax lien?

If you receive correspondence from the Internal Revenue Service about an alleged tax deficiency, it is important to understand your options. There are certain procedural protections afforded to a taxpayer, and an attorney that focuses on tax law can help individuals communicate with the IRS along each step of the way.
