Government Sells Couple’s Home Due to Federal Tax Lien

Posted on November 06, 2014

A taxpayer husband and wife had unpaid liability due to the IRS.

Because of the unpaid liability, the IRS filed a Notice of Federal Tax Lien on the taxpayers’ home.

Because the taxpayers could not satisfy the unpaid liability, and because there was equity in the taxpayers’ home, the government sued the taxpayers in the United States District Court seeking to enforce the Federal Tax Lien against their home through a forced sale.

After considering the case, the U.S. District Court granted partial summary judgment against the IRS allowing it to force the sale of the taxpayers’ home to pay their unpaid liability.

Do you have unpaid liability due to the IRS? Has the IRS filed a Notice of Federal Tax Lien against your home?


There are ways to ask the IRS to withdraw the federal tax lien under certain circumstance.
