How to Automate Your Search for Federal Tax Liens

Posted by Team - 13 October, 2020



Finding federal tax liens can be difficult and take up valuable time. You lose billable hours and may not unearth anything of value.

  • Different counties use different terminology and acronyms.
  • You must search each county’s records separately.
  • Not all recorded liens are labeled by type.

The IRS had over $43 billion of enforced and late federal income tax payments from individuals according to the Tax Gap Estimates for 2011-2013. You can only imagine the tax gap now.

Since a federal tax lien is a common option for enforcing payment, that $43 billion or more represents a massive number of liens you could access to find leads and approach prospects.

Federal Tax Lien Overview

When individuals do not pay their income taxes in full, and do not set up a payment program, the IRS begins enforcement proceedings to compel payment. One tool used is a federal tax lien.

A lien is a legal method of establishing a claim on the value of a piece of property. Liens are placed against houses and other real property, personal property, and financial assets. The lien ensures that the proceeds from the sale of the asset go to pay the tax debt first.

Much of the time, these taxpayers don’t know how to get out of the situation on their own. They need an advocate to help them navigate the annually thickening jungle of federal tax law. They need help to set up payment agreements or reduce payments.

Tax attorneys, CPAs, and enrolled agents are all in the market for these potential customers.
