Tax Problems – Does a tax lien automatically attach to the taxpayer’s property?

Does a tax lien automatically attach to the taxpayer’s property? Yes. A tax lien arises automatically when the taxpayer fails to pay an assessed tax, and the IRS does not need to take any action to validate the lien. The lien relates back and attaches to the taxpayer’s property as of the date of the assessment. A tax lien is generally valid against a third party however, only if the IRS timely files a Form 668(Y) (Notice of Federal Tax Lien) with the appropriate authority. Once the notice of lien is properly filed, any third person acquiring the property acquires it subject to the tax lien. Considering a Tax Professional?
