The Tax Lien 10-day to Countdown!

If you receive a Notice and Demand for Payment from the IRS, the 10-day countdown begins as to what could potentially be one of the biggest financial nightmares one can face – a lien on your property by the IRS. When a lien is placed on your property, all of your creditors are notified that the government now has a claim against your property. Not only does the presence of a lien seriously damage your credit rating, but it greatly hampers your ability to sell your property.


If you filed your taxes but haven’t paid what you owe, you should be on the lookout for a document titled Notice and Demand for Payment from the IRS. It’s like the IRS has a countdown timer with exactly 10 days left on it, and it is their way of warning you that they’ve just started the countdown.


After this first document is mailed, the IRS begins mailing a series of five more documents that will arrive over the next 10 days.


If you choose to ignore these warnings, it will virtually guarantee that you will ruin your credit and make selling your house at the best difficult, at the worst, impossible. You also will not be able to get your children any financial aid for college.
