Understanding a Federal Tax Lien
A federal tax lien is the government’s legal “claim” against your property when you neglect or fail to pay a tax debt.
The lien is a “claim” that protects the government’s interest in all your property, including real estate, personal property and financial assets (US bank accounts).
A federal tax lien “claim” exists after the IRS:
- Puts your balance due on the books (*assesses your liability);
- Sends you a bill that explains how much you owe (Notice and Demand for Payment); and
- Neglect or refuse to fully pay the debt in time.
The IRS files a public document, the Notice of Federal Tax Lien, to alert creditors that the government has a legal right to your property. For more information, refer to Publication 594, The IRS Collection Process (PDF), text segments of the same are below.
(Page 2) General steps from billing to collection
You file your tax return. Most returns are filed annually (by April 15th)
1. If you owe taxes, we’ll send you a *bill. This is your first bill for tax due. Based on your return, we’ll calculate how much tax you owe, plus any interest and penalties.
2. If you don’t pay your first bill, we’ll send you at least one more bill. Remember, interest and penalties continue to accrue until you’ve paid your full amount due.
3. If you still don’t pay after you receive your final bill, we’ll begin collection actions.
Collection actions can range from applying your previous tax year’s refund to tax due to seizing your property and assets.
*Bill and *assess are terms to be conjoined. Those same terms are your challenge.
The US government cannot ultimately make a legal claim upon your property without making a verified claim when you challenge their claim.
This is where the Demand for the 6203 Assessment comes into play to protect your independence from their claims that lack written law application.
If you may not have a duty they trick millions of people into voluntarily claiming that duty, or better yet creating that duty by filing a US Tax Form.
When you sign that US Tax Form (Generally a 1040 IRS Form) you, possibly, unwillingly, unknowingly, ignorantly, un-consentingly, just entered into a ink signed written agreement for services and benefits from the US Federal System.
NOTE – Contracts without full disclosure, or is un-conscionable, has effect, it has no force in any court, and they are un-enforceable except by fraud.
So the key is to challenge the bill.
If you do not challenge it, it stands as a valid bill.
6203 assessments are how you challenge it.
When the IRS does not provide you with a true assessment they must by written law remove all claims and return illegally seized property or bank account funds.
(The IRS often sends out what appears is a 6203 assessment but it lacks specifics that are in a true 6203 assessment, it is then only a bill and must also be challenged by a demand for a true 6203.)
Banks that refuse to return funds that have been turned over to the IRS illegally can be sued in any court of territorial jurisdiction.
If they refuse to return upon demand then the court is to apply a 20% additional fee for what was first lawfully demanded.
