New York City Tax Lien Lawyer
A "lien" may be simply defined as a legal claim or hold upon real or personal property, making it collateral against money or services owed to another person or entity. A lien may keep a person from selling or transferring that property. When a person fails to pay income tax or other taxes or owes delinquent taxes on real property or other property, the proper taxing authority may place a lien on the taxpayer's property. The IRS or other taxing authorities may also resort to
wage garnishment and
bank levies to seek the money they are owed.
Stopping Tax Liens by the IRS
Tax liens may be imposed for a failure to pay property taxes, and the IRS or state tax authority may impose tax liens to collect unpaid income taxes. A tax lien may affect your credit score, and failing to address the matter can have serious consequences. It is therefore highly recommended that you talk to a tax attorney at our New York City law firm to see what we can do to help you work out a payment plan or installment agreement, offer in compromise or a tax settlement to handle your tax debt once and for all.
There are also ways that we can work to prevent a tax lien in the first place or contest a lien that has already been imposed if this was made in error or was based upon misinformation. As with most tax-related matters, it is best to take a proactive approach. Your tax lien lawyer at our offices, along with our other professionals, can conduct a complete analysis of your financial and tax situation to determine the best approach.
