A tax lien is essentially a claim placed on your property - such as a home, vehicle or other item of value - by a government taxation authority, such as the IRS or the Arizona Department of Revenue (ADOR). The lien, in itself, does not mean that the government will seize your property. However, it means that the government has first right to your property ahead of any other creditors. In order to place a lien on your property, the taxing authority must first assess a tax amount owed, send a bill to your last known address and give you a certain period of time to pay the bill; if it is not paid within the allotted time, the government may then file a notice of tax lien.
