Q: How do I get a letter from The IRS stating I am in good standing with no tax liens or other encumbrances?

A: To the best of my knowledge, the IRS does not have such a document. The closest thing that the IRS has to what you are looking for is a record of account transcript. However, the record of account transcript only shows certain information. You can refer to the following webpage to see what information is reflected on the record of account transcript.

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