I am trying to find out if IRS and California Franchise Tax liens have expired as well as a civil judgement

Accountant's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

California

Accountant's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Both state and federal liens were filed as well as the abstract of judgement on the civil case but I believe that expired in 2016 but not sure.

Accountant's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Lol...how much?

I am showing the last abstract of judgement recorded in San Luis Obispo County 4/25/06. While I know liens were filed by tax agencies, I do not know when they were originally recorded. They would have likely been recorded in Orange County, CA.

Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

Generally, IRS tax liens expire after 10 years and CA FTB tax liens expire after 20 years.

My best advice would be to check with the Orange County, CA recorder's office to obtain copies of the tax liens and abstract of judgment and any subsequent filings pertaining to those items.

You will then know whether they have expired.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
