Tax Lien/Levy Removal

The IRS protects its position through liens, and enforces its position through levies. Lien issues are complex, because they are at the intersection of federal tax law and state property tax principles. Levies, issued generally only at the end of the assessment and collection process, are the ‘knock out’ blow for most taxpayers and business, and unless a release is properly obtained, generally will drive the individual taxpayer into bankruptcy and force the business taxpayer to end operations.
