OHIO Taxation Liens

When a State of Ohio tax liability is referred to the Ohio Attorney General for collection, a tax lien can be filed with the county courts against a your real and/or personal property. This claim then used by the state of Ohio as collateral for a tax liability. The Ohio Attorney General Collections Enforcement utilizes the tax lien to ensure that your state tax account will get paid. In addition to your property or assets being tied up, as the tax lien is a matter of public record it can appear on your credit reports, which can negatively impact the your ability to secure financing for a house, car, credit card, or other items.
