IRS Tax Debt Relief in Tennessee

Do you owe back taxes to the Tennessee Department of Revenue or the Internal Revenue Service? Tax debt can cause a lot of headaches—and the government will take legal action to collect what it's owed. But a Tennessee tax attorney can analyze your financial situation, review your old tax returns and help you find a workable tax relief solution.

Potential Penalties for Unpaid Taxes

If you fail to pay taxes to the IRS or the Tennessee Department of Revenue, the government may:

  • Charge you interest on your unpaid tax debt and add fines and penalties to your tax bill. These tax penalties will continue until your balance is paid in full.
  • File a legal claim—known as a tax lien—against your real estate, motor vehicles and other property of value. You will be prevented from selling the property until the tax debt is paid and the lien is removed.
  • Report the tax lien to various credit bureaus, which will damage your credit score. If you apply for credit cards or a loan, you may find that it's more difficult or expensive to obtain credit.
  • Impose a tax levy against your property. The levy authorizes the government to seize and sell your property to satisfy your tax debt. You could lose your home, car, jewelry and other valuables, as well as your bank accounts.

If you ignore federal and Tennessee tax bills, the government is likely to take these actions in an effort to collect what it is owed.
