Hello my name is ***** ***** I will assist you today.
Once a tax lien is filed the IRS generally cannot release it until the taxes are paid in full or until the government may no longer collect the tax.
Income tax debt that may be forgiven in bankruptcy must meet the following criteria
- The tax debt must be related to a return that was due at least three years before the tax payer filed for bankruptcy
- The tax return must have been filed at least two years ago
- The tax assessment mus be at least 240 days old.
The tax payer cannot be guilty of tax evasion, and the tax return cannot be fraudulent or frivolous.
I have placed a link below to IRS Form 1227 Application for Withdrawal of Filed Form 668(Y)
Please see question 11. 1. "Reason for requesting withdrawal of the filed Notice of Federal Tax Lien ("x" appropriate box(es)"
Please also review "Understanding a Federal Tax Lien," which I have linked below.
