A tax lien imposed by the Tennessee Department of Revenue is a claim against a taxpayer's real and/or personal property, used as collateral for tax debt to the state of Tennessee. The TN Department of Revenue wants to ensure that the state tax debt is paid by the taxpayer and it will seek to secure payment from any source it can find. A tax lien can appear on the credit reports of the taxpayer, which can negatively impact the taxpayer's ability to secure financing for a house, car, or other items.
If you owe the Tennessee Department of Revenue back business or other taxes, a Distress Warrant for Collection of Tax may be issued, which requires that you to pay the total amount due or accept the expense & consequences of the warrant.
The state of TN imposed tax lien establishes the right of the Tennessee Department of Revenue to seize and sell your assets in the event that you cannot or will not pay your state of Tennessee tax liability. While the TN Department of Revenue will usually seek alternative methods of collection prior to selling your property at auction, it is important to address any tax notices received.
One motivation for the Tennessee Department of Revenue for filing a tax lien is to protect the state government’s interest against other potential creditors. In other words: the TN Department of Revenue can use a tax lien to ensure that their ability to collect takes precedence over another creditor. If you have unfiled Tennessee or Federal tax returns with the IRS, or have received notice from the Tennessee Department of Revenue issuing A Distress Warrant for Collection of Tax, you should seek back tax help from a qualified tax relief attorney, such as Kenneth Sheppard, Jr. immediately.
A tax lien from the Tennessee Department of Revenue may be prevented by making payment in full to the state in advance of the lien being filed. If payment in full is not financially possible, the tax lawyer helping you with your TN taxation issues can explore other options such as appealing the tax decision, setting up an installment agreement or negotiating an Offer in Compromise. If you have received a notification from the state, including a Distress Warrant for Collection of Tax, it is important to consult a qualified tax attorney serving Tennessee in order to assess your situation and seek the best method for your circumstances to avoid the lien from being filed by the Tennessee Department of Revenue.
