Many real estate professionals are familiar with the Notice of Federal Tax Lien (NFTL) that sometimes shows up during a title search subsequent to a sale or refinance of real property.  But did you know there was such a thing as a "silent" tax lien?Internal Revenue Code 6332 is the authority of this so-called "silent tax lien".  Essentially, the code states that a lien  "shall arise at the time the assessment is made" and continues until the lien is satisfied or until the assessment becomes unenforceable by the lapse of collection time limits.The "silent lien" comes into effect automatically without notice to anyone by operation of federal law.  This is unlike the NFTL which is open and notorious.  The NFTL is usually recorded on the delinquent taxpayer's real property title in the town...
