A tax lien is the government's legal claim of your assets and is used to recoup your tax debt when you owe back taxes. A lien is used whether you are an individual or a business. Liens are public information once they are recorded. They lead to credit damage. Also, many companies will search through public information to gather the names of people who have IRS liens and solicit them for clients. Of course, this is a nuisance for the taxpayer who gets the advertisements, phone calls, etc. If you are facing a tax lien, our team can help.
