The California Franchise Tax Board (FTB) can issue a state tax lien on real or personal property to recover state tax debt. This lien protects their right to the balance owed. It also makes it difficult to sell your property or refinance your mortgage, and can damage your credit rating.
While a state tax lien does not involve seizure of your assets, it can still cause numerous financial difficulties. Getting a tax lien removed can be done in conjuncture with other tax relief strategies to eliminate your California income tax problems.
