Form 668Y is the form used by the IRS when the IRS files a tax lien. The form will state the taxpayer, type of tax owed, the amount of tax and period of tax. Generally, the IRS will file Form 668Y in the county where the taxpayer lives or conducts business and the county or counties where the taxpayer owns real property. The IRS lien gives notice to creditors that the lien exists and becomes public knowledge. Further, the tax lien will likely impact the taxpayer’s credit.
