It is possible to have a tax lien withdrawn against your property in certain circumstances. For example, if the lien was improperly filed, if you enter into an installment agreement, if it would make it faster or easier for the IRS to collect, or if it's in the best interest of you and the government.

You will need to obtain IRS Form 12277, fill it out and provide it to the IRS. It's available on the IRS website. The withdrawal of a notice of tax lien can help you get a job and pay the IRS in certain cases, for example. The IRS will want you to be in compliance with tax filing requirements, however, to be elegible for relief.
