Having your Federal Tax Lien released is the only way you can be sure your personal property will not be seized. The most simple way of removing a tax lien is by paying in full. Thirty days after payment is received, the lien is removed. If cash is paid, the lien is removed immediately.
A federal tax lien is the government’s legal claim against your property when you neglect or fail to pay a tax debt. The tax lien protects the government’s interest in all of your property, including real estate, personal property and financial assets.
