Tax Liens & Their Resolution
Getting a loan is often challenging for any small business, and owing money to the IRS, or other government agency, can create additional obstacles. But is getting business financing with a tax lien on your record impossible? Not if you approach it correctly.
The purpose of a tax lien is to guarantee that the government receives the taxes you owe before any other creditor or lender. A lien can hurt your chances of securing a business loan because every lender wants assurance they’ll get their money back. If the government already has a claim to your property, that puts other lenders at the back of the line.
Business liens are a matter of public record and appear on your business credit report, which severely impacts your business’s credit rating, similar to if you declared bankruptcy. As you can imagine, this makes it much more difficult for you to not only secure a business loan, but also to refinance an existing loan, sell your business, or even transfer any of your business assets.
To make matters worse, a tax lien against your business could even affect your spouse’s financial standing. While your tax lien will not directly damage your spouse’s personal credit rating, it can make it difficult for you to apply for credit together, such as if you were buying a home together, or the lien against your business might attach to property you and your spouse own jointly.
The good news is that when you do pay your business taxes, the government can easily remove the tax lien from your record. If you’re able to pay off your tax debt in full, the IRS, or other government agency, will generally release the lien within 30 days of receiving payment.
