Credit Repair Legal Terminology

Tax Liens

1
If an owner of a house defaulted on payment of real estate taxes a lien may be placed on the property to secure payment of taxes. A tax lien may be placed for non payment of federal, as well as state taxes.
If there is a federal tax lien on your home, you must satisfy the lien before you can sell or refinance your home. There are a number of options to satisfy the tax lien. Normally, if you have equity in your property, the tax lien is paid (in part or in whole depending on the equity) out of the sales proceeds at the time of closing. If the home is being sold for less than the lien amount, the taxpayer can request the IRS discharge the lien to allow for the completion of the sale. Taxpayers or lenders also can ask that a federal tax lien be made secondary to the lending institution's lien to allow for the refinancing or restructuring of a mortgage. Source: www.irs.gov
