CAN I GET A TAX LIEN RELEASE 1988-2000 THEY NEVER TRY TO MAKE HIM PAY IT

Hello alcissy,

 

A lien usually releases automatically 10 years after a tax is assessed, if the statutory period for collection has not been extended and the IRS extended the effect of the lien by re-filing it. When a lien is self-released, the Notice of Federal Tax Lien itself is the release document. You do not receive a separate lien release document.

 

The lien is considered self released if the:

  • date for refiling has passed and
  • IRS has not refiled the original Notice of Federal Tax Lien.

Taxpayers should check the column titled Last Day for Re-filing on the Notice of Federal Tax Lien to determine if the lien is self-released.

Thank you alcissy

SO THE IRS LAST DAY REFILLING IS 6/27/2000 SO THIS TAX LIEN IS RELEASE
Expert:  Merlo replied 6 years ago.

Hello again alcissy,

 

If the date listed as the last day for refiling is 6/27/2000, the that lien automatically released 30 days after that date. So the lien released on 7/27/2000.

 

The lien document itself that shows that date serves as your lien release.

Thank you alcissy
