If you have recently received notice that there is a tax lien against your home, you need to quickly contact a tax lawyer for IRS tax help. Receiving official notice from the IRS about a tax lien against your home means that the government has placed a legal claim against your home as a form of leverage to attempt to secure its interest in your assets to satisfy past tax debts. While this doesn’t mean that the IRS is going to take over your home and evict you, it does have some potentially negative consequences.
