Discharge of the NFTL is filed as public record. Both the original NFTL and the discharge of the NFTL will show on public record, but the discharge acts to remove lien on a specific piece of property. The NFTL remains in effect and continues to attach your property and future rights to property.
This notice or letter may include additional topics that have not yet been covered. Please check back frequently for updates.
What does this mean to me?
The NFTL has been filed against your assets and you would like the lien removed a specific property. The IRS may consider granting a discharge of the NFTL to remove the lien from the property.
How did I get here?
There are various reasons you may be considering discharge of the NFTL, including when you are selling a property and the lien needs to be removed from the property so that enforcement action, such as seizure, does not affect the new owner. See Publication 783, Instructions on how to apply for a Certificate of Discharge from Federal Tax Lien, for a full list of circumstances where IRS will consider discharge of the NFTL.
