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.

Do you owe unpaid back taxes? There are tax relief solutions to your IRS tax problems.

The IRS could file a federal tax lien to protect the US government from the back taxes owed by the taxpayer. Although the federal IRS tax lien attaches to all the taxpayer’s property, some property is exempt from the IRS levy. The following items could be exempt from levy to some extent:

(1) wearing apparel and school books,

You recently asked what will happen and what you should do in the event that you cannot pay your taxes on time. First and most importantly, don’t let your inability to pay your tax liability in full keep you from filing your tax return properly and on time. It is also important to remember that an extension of time to file your tax return doesn’t also extend the time to pay your tax bill. Get tax resolution services at 1-877-788-2937.

Even if you can’t make full payment of your liabilities, timely filing your return and making the largest partial payment you can will save you substantial amounts in interest and penalties. Additionally, there are procedures for requesting payment extensions and installment payment arrangements which will keep the IRS from instituting its collection process (liens, property seizures, etc.) against you.

Overview of the most common penalties. The “failure to file” penalty accrues at the rate of 5% per month or part of a month (to a maximum of 25%, reached after five months) on the amount of tax your return should show you owe. The “failure to pay” penalty is gentler, accruing at the rate of only 0.5% per month or part of a month (to a maximum of 25% reached after fifty months) on the amount actually shown as due on the return. If both apply, the failure to file penalty drops to 4.5% per month, so the total combined penalty remains at 5%–thus, the maximum combined penalty for the first five months is 25%. Thereafter, the failure to pay penalty can continue at 0.5% per month for 45 more months, yielding an additional 22.5%. In total, these combined penalties can reach 47.5% of your unpaid liability in less than five years.

Do you owe back Taxes? Did you receive an audit letter from the IRS?

First, do not to panic. The IRS uses various letters to communicate with taxpayers about IRS back taxes and IRS tax audits. As with most IRS communications, there are strict deadlines associated with these letters that you have to meet. You should seriously review the items that are being challenged and prepare your factual response in a clear way to the IRS. As taxpayer, you can represent yourself, or hire a professional tax representative as a power of attorney to resolve your tax matters. Selecting a tax return for audit does not always suggest that the taxpayer has either made an error or been dishonest. In fact, some audits result in a refund to the taxpayer or acceptance of the return without change.

We represent clients before the IRS to resolve their tax controversies. The tax law is complicated and a professional will be better able to guide you through the audit experience, or to effectively resolve your back tax matter.

IRS Announces New Effort to Help Struggling Taxpayers Get a Fresh Start; Major Changes Made to IRS Tax Lien Process

IR-2011-20

IRS WASHINGTON — In its latest effort to help struggling taxpayers, the Internal Revenue Service today announced a series of new steps to help people get a fresh start with their tax liabilities.

Good news for American taxpayers who have an outstanding IRS Tax Debt: IRS is still accepting a large number of requests for settlements of delinquent back taxes from taxpayers who are in financial distress and cannot pay their back taxes in full. However, it is a pity that even a huge number of American citizens are possibly qualified for IRS tax relief programs, yet only a small percentage has managed to settle and benefit from these programs. This article not only explores the mistakes made by the individuals who owe IRS back taxes but also explains the best line of attack to resolve your IRS problems.

Although the Internal Revenue Service is offering the taxpayers having back tax problems a solitary opportunity to say goodbye to their tax debt for good, it neither advertises nor suggests that taxpayers should make the use of their offerings. This clearly depicts that the IRS is more eager to recover its full amount instead of providing you the relief. Therefore, most of the taxpayers in financial hardship are not aware of this golden opportunity.

On the other hand, the major reason for taxpayers not being able to enjoy the tax debt settlement offer by IRS is not awareness. In fact majority of taxpayers shamble their case themselves by taking wrong steps, incorrect paperwork and various other mistakes. At the end of the day, these taxpayers have to pay much more than the actual amount owed or end up doing nothing at all.
