CPA Examines Defects in IRS Procedures for issuing Form 668(Y) | Withdrawal of Federal Tax Lien via Form 12277 | Actual Release of IRS Tax Lien for Back Taxes on Form 10916(c)

We’ve published multiple posts on IRS Form 668(Y) and how to remove the IRS tax lien it establishes. One basis for requesting withdrawal of the tax lien occurs when the IRS doesn’t follow its own internal rules for Form 668(Y). This post  discusses how often that happens according to a TIGTA report. Here’s the sequence of events typical in an IRS Tax Lien.

In this post we look at how often the IRS mishandles Form 668(Y), giving the taxpayer a basis for requesting IRS tax lien removal via Form 12277, Application for Withdrawal of Filed Form 668(Y), Notice of Federal Tax Lien.

TIGTA (Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration) published Challenges Remain When Processing Undeliverable Mail and Preventing Violations of Taxpayers’ Rights During the Lien Due Process, May 13, 2011 Reference Number: 2011-30-051. Here’s the link to their complete report.

Key Point on Federal Tax Lien Removal

From July 1, 2009 to June 30, 2010, TIGTA estimates 32,552 taxpayers had their rights violated because IRS representatives mishandled the IRS tax lien, i.e. 32,552 CPAs weren’t notified that their clients received Form 668(Y).

“Most of the time the IRS is a well-oiled machine. But if the IRS violates its own rules when preparing or delivering Form 688(Y), they can be forced to withdraw the lien.”
-Gary Bode, tax lien CPA and tax accountant
