Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

It depends on the state budget and amount you owe. For state of KY to get a lien on property in PA they would have to hire a PA lawyer and get a court order. If the amount is less than 10K, it is not likely KY will even try. And if the property is heavily mortgage they may not even get what they want. A lien only means they will be entitled to some of the sales proceeds when you sale the property. It does not mean that they will sell your property.

KY will probably go after your business assets or something that is easier to get or cash like bank accounts or federal refund. You may not be able to renew your KY business licence or register your business cars. They will find other ways to collect than wait for years if you ever sell your house.
