Experienced Bankruptcy Tax Lien Removal and the Automatic Stay

The filing of a petition under any chapter of bankruptcy will immediately stop all forms of collections, liens, levies or other attachments through the immediate creation of an automatic stay. The automatic stay halts all forms of tax collection and provides the time to create a customized plan for tax resolution based upon the provisions of the Bankruptcy Code and your specific budget. The Bankruptcy Code also provides for the removal of attachments, liens, levies and garnishments, even those already in effect before the bankruptcy filing.

  • Personal Property Attachment and Repossession
  • Wage Garnishments
  • Bank Account Levies and Executions
  • Real Estate Liens and Attachments
