Direct Debit Installment Agreement (ASL) - YouTube video text script
Hi. I’m Patti, and I work for the IRS.
Do you have a federal tax lien filed against you because you owe back taxes? A lien means that the government has a claim against any property you own, such as your home, car, or boat, based on the amount you owe.
Here's a solution.
You may be able to have that lien lifted simply by setting up a special type of electronic payment agreement with the IRS.
It's called a Direct Debit Installment Agreement and it will usually allow you to have the lien withdrawn.
In most cases, if you owe $25, 000 or less and are currently making payments through a Direct Debit Installment Agreement, you may qualify to have your lien withdrawn.
This is part of a wider effort by the IRS. We want to help struggling taxpayers get a fresh start.
