Release Tax Lien

"Just like Spiderman's web, IRS tax lien works like a net or web that sticks and entangles all your assets." Victor J. Yoo, Los Angeles Tax Attorney

A Tax Lien is used by the IRS as a tool for security towards or payment for income tax owed the federal government. The filing of a tax lien serves as a public notice to your creditors that the IRS has a claim on property that is in your name, including properties acquired after the lien is filed including your house, car and bank accounts.

IRS may issue a Withdraw or Release filing of the Notice of Federal Tax Lien under certain circumstances including some of the situations listed below:

  1. Taxpayer has fully paid all taxes owed, including interest and additional fees.
  2. Taxpayer has successfully negotiated and paid the lower amount of taxes by method of an Offer in Compromise.
  3. IRS accepts a bond that the taxpayer submits that serves as a guarantee of payment of the debt.

We had a irs problem and came to Victor. He is very knowledgeable and gave us great advice. I would recommend him to anyone with tax problems. He also does franchise tax board cases but we didn't need him for that. I have referred fiends to him and they were happy with him too. Pam
★★★★★
My elderly mother had a very complicated tax problem from when she lived in CA years ago. Even though we now live in Oregon, Mr. Yoo not only helped her remotely but delivered better and expected results. We couldn't have asked for better service. Lisa
★★★★★
Victor got us out of a jam with the IRS. We were the first to be offered a new amnesty program and it saved us quite a bit in taxes, but more importantly gave us peace of mind. John
★★★★★
Our personal taxes got complicated because of an erroneous 1099 we received. As a result our tax liability increased. Victor was able to iron things out with the IRS and Franchise Tax Board. Ed
