Liens & Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Nationwide Representation from Our Chicago-based Tax Attorney

If the taxes owed exceed the debtor’s property value, the lien may not be stripped down and the lien survives the bankruptcy. If the lien is not released, it remains.

Challenge the Validity of an Invalid Tax Lien

  • Could be filed in wrong county
  • Could be asserted against real property for taxes that were discharged
  • Lien filed in the wrong name (corp. name rather than debtors)
  • Lien may have been filed in violation of automatic stay

Local practice will determine whether a lien can be challenged by motion or by adversary.

Request a Certificate of Release from IRS

If taxes have been discharged and debtor’s assets are minimal, just request that the IRS release the lien; they often will.

Negotiate a Release for an Amount to Be Paid

Advise Client to Wait Out the Statute of Limitations

A tax lien is valid for 10 years from the date the taxes were assessed (not 10 years from date lien was filed).

Liquidate the Assets & Pay the Funds to the IRS

File a Chapter 13 & Pay the Value of the Asset

In Chapter 13, the debtor can strip down the lien to the value of the asset.
