THERE ARE NO OTHER WAYS TO GET FEDERAL TAX LIENS RELEASED. Do not be fooled by companies telling you they can.
An IRS Federal Tax Lien is a legal claim asserted against a taxpayer’s assets in an attempt to collect unpaid taxes.

The best thing to do is to start working on a plan or a solution to the IRS problem. This federal tax lien on back taxes is not going to go away by itself.

The tax lien is only going to go away by one of these three ways; pay the tax in full, have an offer in compromise accepted and the tax due under the offer in full or by the statute of limitation. IRS has a period of ten years from the date the tax was assessed in which to collect the money in full. After that period of time the case removes itself by way of statue.
