An IRS tax lien will remain in place until you pay off taxes owed, prove financial hardship, or until the IRS has levied enough of your assets to call it even. With just a tax lien, the IRS cannot take assets, but they will eventually place a levy on your assets if no action is taken when a tax lien is given. A tax levy is highly likely if you do not resolve your taxes after the lien is placed. A lien ensures that the IRS has a legal claim on your property so you cannot sell or dispose of property without the IRS taking its share first.
