Colorado Property Liens

The Colorado Department of Revenue (CDOR) has the right and the ability to file a Notice of Federal Tax Lien with the counties in which it suspects a taxpayer possesses “property or rights to property”, in order to attempt to collect overdue taxes. Much to the chagrin of Colorado taxpayers, CDOR also publishes an online list of delinquent taxpayers for all the world to see.

Once a lien is filed, CDOR can take action to foreclose the lien and sell the property to pay the tax. Business owners should be aware that CDOR will not hesitate to quickly padlock a business after the first default of an installment agreement, and sell the business assets to pay the tax.
