IRS to Change Procedures for Release and Withdrawal of Tax Liens - Sunday, March 17, 2013


The IRS agrees that releases and withdrawals of lien notices have not always been processed timely or properly. IRS said it would make changes to the Internal Revenue Manual to provide for improved documentation and timely disposition of withdrawals. It will also make additional changes to elaborate on the manual lien release process. But most importantly, the IRS will consider the possibility of the programming change within the Automated Lien System.


When taxpayers neglect or refuse to pay their taxes, IRS can and usually does file notices of federal tax liens with local government offices to protect the federal government's right of priority against certain third parties, such as purchasers or creditors.


A federal tax lien can be filed for multiple tax periods containing an outstanding tax liability, but it must be released once a taxpayer meets certain conditions.

Sometimes a federal tax lien is withdrawn, particularly if it is filed in error. But in other cases, such as after a taxpayer files for bankruptcy, IRS must refile a tax lien to maintain its “priority position” established by the filing of the first lien.


The IRS acknowledges that withdrawal delays can cause unnecessary burdens on taxpayers while untimely releases could violate taxpayers' rights.

While refiles of the federal tax liens are usually properly processed and within the required time period, withdrawals have significantly increased and have not always properly or timely processed.
