The house can be sold with the lien on it if there is no funds available from the sale to pay anything to the IRS. The request to withdraw the lien can be made by the seller's attorney. The lien stays on your credit report even after the property is sold.
I have random liens that say released and one I cant figure out. I had all credits and threr was never a tax debt. How do I find out what the lien is all about? These are 2005
