IRS Notices & Liens
IRS Notices & Liens Fort Lauderdale
Receiving an IRS notice that demands thousands of dollars or years worth of past tax information for an audit is a scary thought. These notices are often in bureaucratic language that the average layperson cannot decipher. The emotional impact of receiving a negative IRS notice can make anyone lose sleep. But there’s more to IRS notices than just emotional suffering. There’s a reality behind receiving a notice that must be faced and gone through if you want to get over the emotional pain.
What Happens With An IRS Tax Lien?
If you’ve received an IRS lien, that’s even worse. These are documents made public that inform any other creditors that the IRS has first priority on your property if it’s ever sold. If you try to sell the property with a lien on it the IRS will take the profit from the sale first until the tax debt is settled. This is a big problem for business owners or real estate developers who run into tax issues with the IRS. You could be stuck in your property and unable to sell. Plus, as a public notice, your potential buyers could stay far away since they won’t want to tangle with an encumbered title.
Naturally, our area of law involves dealing with the IRS on a regular basis. We have found that the IRS actually has a surprising amount of flexibility, but our clients don’t have the knowledge to take advantage of it. We help people from all walks of life, including business owners and high-net-worth individuals, sort out their tax issues and tax disputes with the IRS.
