What To Do About A Tax Lien

A tax lien is a potentially serious consequence of unresolved tax debt owed to the state or federal government. If the IRS or North Carolina Department of Revenue intends to file or has filed a tax lien against you and/or your property and real estate, it is important to talk to an attorney right away.

At Gillespie & Murphy, P.A., we are experienced in helping clients work with the IRS to create a compensation schedule that can either remove a tax lien that has been filed or prevent its initial filing.

A tax lien is filed in the North Carolina county in which you live. It creates a public record that you owe taxes to the IRS or North Carolina Department of Revenue. The filing of a tax lien will be reported to credit agencies, causing your credit score to plummet. This is likely to make it all but impossible for you to finance a home or obtain a line of credit.

The IRS or the North Carolina Department of Revenue can also file a tax lien against your property, making it impossible for you to sell or use your property as collateral in obtaining financing.

Essentially, a tax lien has the potential of creating a financial trap from which it is very difficult to exit.
