There’s a possibility that if the delinquent taxpayer is being noncompliant, the IRS will issue an assessment and then go on to issue a tax warrant. This tax warrant covers the initial outstanding amount and then the interest and penalties that have accrued throughout the process. If the tax warrant is not paid within a certain amount of time, for whatever reason, then the case is filed through the county Superior Court. Then there’s a possibility that liens come. A tax warrant basically establishes a lien against personal property, or any asset that could be used to pay off the debt owed. This includes property of any sort, automobiles, wages, and even bank accounts. Once the case is filed, it then becomes legal for the IRS to take your property or put a hold on your bank account – they can even go as far as to take the money from the bank themselves after a respective amount of time has passed.
