Welcome, THANK YOU for using Just Answer. My goal is to help make your life...a little...LESS taxing.

In order to get the lien released, you will need to request a Certificate Of Release Of Federal Tax Lien. If the past due tax was paid, you can request the certificate by doing the following;

If you have paid the tax you owed and have not received a copy of the Certificate of Release of Federal Tax Lien, you may call 1-800-913-6050, or you can write to them. If on the other hand, the past due taxes were not paid and the SOL has expired, see below:

Requests for certificates of release for any other reason should be mailed to IRS, Attn: Technical Services Advisory Group Manager. Use Publication 4235, Technical Services Advisory Group Addresses, to determine where to mail your request.

Link to Pub 4235:

In Pub 4235, use the address that relates to the state of Alabama

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you regarding this matter.

Thank you again for using JUST ANSWER.
