Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
Extension extends your time to file a return, not to make a payment. If you did not pay by April 15 you are late. Also, 90% of your tax liability is due by December 31 (January 15 if you make estimates), not April 15. If you owe more than 10% of your tax liability than you are late over 5 month. Once you file a return the extension is canceled. Unless it is your first offense, the IRS moves pretty fast with the collection process.
Correct. 90% of the current year tax liability or 100% of the last year tax liability is due by December 31 otherwise you are subject to underpayment penalty. There will be no penalty if you owe less than $1000.
A lien is not a levy. A lien only means that that IRS will gets its share when you try to sell it. A lien is usually one of the first steps in collection process. It is not unusual for the IRS to place a lien if you apply for installment agreement or offer in compromise.
All people who are paying taxes in April do not owe more than 10% or less than $1000 OR are penalized for not making estimated payments (underpayment penalty). It is not unusual for the IRS to put a lien on a property to make sure you do not sell or transfer valuable asset to children or relatives or declare bankruptcy. It is usually done early in the collection, generally within 30 days of the first notice. You can request a withdrawal but you will need to pay off he balance or agree to an installment agreement.
