Federal Tax Lien Collection Actions in Detail (Part II)

What to do if a Notice of Federal Tax Lien is filed against you?

You should pay the full amount you owe immediately. The Notice of Federal Tax Lien only shows your assessed balance as of the date of the notice. It doesn’t show your payoff balance or include our charges for filing and releasing the lien. To find out the full amount you must pay to have the lien released, call 1-800-913-6050 or 859-320-3526 if you are calling from outside of the United States. If you have questions, call the number on your lien notice or 1-800-829-1040 or visit www.irs. gov/Businesses/Small-Businesses-&-Self-Employed/Understanding-a-Federal-Tax-Lien, or view instructional videos at www.irsvideos.gov/ Individual/IRSLiens.
