If a federal tax lien is filed, they will record it with the Recorder of
Deeds (or equivalent) in the county where the taxpayer resides. When
the lien has been satisfied, a release of lien is issued by the IRS and
this is also filed with the Record or Deeds, etc. in the same county.
Only question that I have and really never bothered to check it out is
whether or not the IRS records the Release of Lien or if it's mailed to
the taxpayer and they make it his responsibility to record it if he so
As far as learning how much of the lien has been paid off, if any, I
doubt that you'll get that from the IRS. They are, if nothing else, a
very closed-mouth group<g>
