A federal tax lien attaches to all real and personal property of a taxpayer at the time an assessment is made by the Internal Revenue Service and continues until the liability is paid or becomes unenforceable by reason of a lapse of time (10 years). The lien is a statutory lien that is perfected as to the taxpayer at the time the tax is assessed.
