If you choose to avoid your taxes, it may have a negative impact on your credit. Missing your taxes can lead to tax liens, which are serious derogatory marks that may occur when you neglect or fail to pay a tax debt. Here’s some information and resources that may help if you’re dealing with a tax lien on your credit report.
Tax liens are complicated and vary in form and details depending on your individual situation. In essence, a tax lien is the government’s claim against all or some of your assets based on your failure to pay a tax debt on time. They may occur at the state or local level, or at the federal level.
These liens come with many possible personal and legal implications. When it comes to your credit, they’re important to pay attention to because they’ll usually show up as public records on your credit report. Like other types of public records, tax liens have a significant negative impact your score.
Under federal law, unpaid tax liens can remain on credit reports indefinitely, though in practice credit bureaus may remove them after a decade or so.
