Dedicated Representation In Tax Litigation Issues

A tax lien is used by the Nevada state government or IRS as security toward payment of income or payroll taxes or other business/corporate taxes during the course of tax litigation in the event the IRS should win its claim of taxes owed, or in situations where the taxes owed are not disputed but you are otherwise unable to pay in full. Your sole proprietorship or business partnership income flows to your personal income tax returns, so there may be some overlap in terms of assets on which tax liens are levied.

By filing a tax lien, the IRS gives public notice to your creditors that the IRS has a claim on your residential and commercial property, including bank accounts. Our taxation attorneys may be able to persuade the IRS to release or withdraw its lien in certain situations, such as:

  • Full payment of taxes owed
  • Negotiation and payment of taxes under an offer in compromise
  • Submission of a bond as guarantee of payment
  • Violation of procedural requirements for filing of an IRS tax lien, including lack of due process
  • Bankruptcy proceedings
  • Automatic release of tax lien after 10 years when certain requirements are met

A tax lien may affect your personal or business credit rating, causing difficulties in purchasing new property or getting loans.
