A tax lien is a legal claim that is filed by the IRS and is designed to attach assets held by a delinquent taxpayer. This attachment can be on anything of value which you own, from jewelry to real estate. It is also a public announcement of your tax debt which is, of course, a source of consternation and embarrassment. The announcement also moves the IRS to the head of the line over any of your other creditors. The lien will also appear on your credit report and, as you might suspect, this attachment by the federal government can ruin your financial future. This is where it gets interesting. This is also the point where the value of the seasoned, innovative professionals at Cornerstone Tax Resolution is clear. To be specific, the tax lien remains a public record until the delinquent debt is paid. The IRS uses this tactic to intimidate or embarrass the taxpayer into accepting, at best, a settlement weighted heavily toward the best interests of the IRS; or, at worst, an impossible agreement upon which the taxpayer is sure to ultimately default, making matters even worse than they were before.
By allowing Cornerstone Tax Resolution to take control, you ensure yourself of the best settlement possible; a settlement that is in your best interest and that of your family; a settlement that is fair and will allow you the freedom to move forward.
