Definition of "Tax lien"

Patricia Cooper, Real Estate Agent Liberty Bell Real Estate & Property Management

Claim against property for payment of taxes. Life insurance proceeds and annuity benefits are protected against certain creditors of the insured, but the federal government is not one of them. Thus life insurance and annuity benefits can be held liable if the federal government has a tax lien against the insured.
