If you owe the IRS and state unpaid taxes, they may issue a public and legal claim against your property. A tax lien allows the IRS and state first rights to your property against other creditors. This will severely damage your credit score and may prevent any future borrowings for a house, car, or tuition. It is important to respond to a tax lien as soon as possible because a tax lien will be followed by a bank levy or wage garnishment. The Taxperts can help evaluate your options of having the tax lien prevented or removed.
