If you received a letter that reads ‘IRS Letter 1058/LT11’, know that it is a final notice from the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) reminding you about the balance you still owe. Moreover, if you do not resolve your delinquent matter, they will make an attempt to levy your bank accounts, garnish wages and other assets within the next thirty days. In most cases, a CP 504 (a final notice of your due balance) is sent before the IRS Letter 1058. Ideally, IRS Letter 1058/LT11 is more formal than other notices that you may have received by now. It will tell you that they will also be looking for other assets you own that can be levied. By then, you should have received prior notices that should have been addressed.

A tax lien is a type of claim against property that secures the payment of a tax debt. A Federal Tax Lien is a non-consensual lien that gives the IRS an interest in the taxpayer’s property (this interest will allow the IRS to seize and sell the taxpayer’s property in order to satisfy an assessment). Under §6321, the tax lien is imposed in favor of the United States Treasury when an assessment has been made by the IRS, a notice and demand for payment has been made, and the taxpayer has neglected or refused to pay the assessment. Under §6322, the IRS tax lien arises at the time the assessment was made.

The lien attaches to all property and rights to property belonging to the taxpayer at the time the lien arises as well as any property acquired after the lien arises. The IRS files a Notice of Federal Tax Lien to put the taxpayer’s other creditors on notice that the IRS has a claim against all of the taxpayer’s property. The IRS lien continues until liability for the assessment is satisfied by payment or abatement, or the assessment becomes unenforceable by reason of lapse of time.
