Question for the Money Doctors
Question submitted on Aug 3, 2011.
QuestionI have a tax lien from 1992. Can the IRS now take my VA disability checks to pay the lien. I have no assets or any other income.
The IRS can virtually take anything you own. It can take up to 15% of your government social security benefits, which suggests it is likely they can take a portion of your government VA benefits.
The lien is over 20 years old and may have been abated. I recommend you contact the IRS lien department to determine if your lien continues to exist.
