Getting relief from an IRS tax lien: a brief look at tax lien subordination

In previous posts, we’ve looked at several avenues of relief available to taxpayers dealing with an IRS tax lien. As we noted before, the best way of addressing a tax lien is to pay the underlying debt so that the IRS releases the lien. Taxpayers who dispute the tax bill should, of course, address any errors through the appeals process before paying the bill.

A brief look at tax liens, and getting the IRS to release them, P.2

Last time, we began looking at the topic of releasing tax liens. As we noted, the best way to address the issue is to simply pay the debt, though taxpayers shouldn’t resign themselves to a debt with which they disagree. If the debt is properly calculated, paying it off will result in the full release of the tax lien in fairly short order.

We previously wrote on this blog about the return of Floyd Mayweather Jr., out of return, to engage in a match with UFC champion Conor McGregor. As we noted, Mayweather’s motivation for taking on the match is largely that he needs the money to satisfy the IRS, which claims that he owes millions in unpaid taxes from 2015, which was his last major fight.

Tax lien tactics, part 2: removing or limiting a lien

In the first part of this post, we gave an example of how the IRS can use federal tax liens as part of its collection actions. The case involved a rap musician by the name of Rick Ross who once played Vegas but ran into trouble with the IRS for alleged underpayment of his taxes.

Overcoming procrastination about impending issues (such as taxes)

It's a natural human tendency to procrastinate. After all, life for homo sapiens used to be a lot simpler. In a hunter-gatherer world, there were clear signals about when to take certain actions. Getting out on the hunt and avoiding threats from predators were in-the-moment experiences, triggering fight or flight responses.

Tax liens are major tools of the IRS tax collection regimen

One thing that can put an empty feeling in the pit of one's stomach is the knowledge that the IRS has entered a tax lien for back taxes left unpaid. IRS tax liens are not to be taken lightly, and it is in the individual's best interest to put the time, effort and money into clearing up that kind of a blemish. Whether in Nevada or another state, tax liens can ruin one's credit, stop a real estate sale or a mortgage approval, and eventually could be the basis for a tax levy that leads to the freezing and seizing of one's accounts.

IRS tax liens reversed by tax court where discretion was abused

It may be unknown to most people in Nevada and elsewhere, but there is a tax law that gives IRS agents the discretion to exercise their judgment in pursuing collection cases. If that discretion is abused by the agent, the taxpayer may have the chance of reversing the agent's actions in a federal tax court. This rule applies to the injudicious entrance of tax liens against a taxpayer when a more conservative collection approach would have been more reasonable and fruitful.
