State Income Tax Judgments... are they treated like IRS Liens with the 120 day redemption period?

Does any body know what happens to the State Income tax Judgments? Are they treated the same way like IRS Judgments Liens & does 120 days Rule apply here too?

Hi Tariq,
State tax liens do not have the same redemption period as an IRS lien.

Thanks Michelle but if they were recorded after the deed of trust, they just get wipped out as the result of foreclosure. Thanks, Tariq

What is the difference between liens & judgment liens

A judgment is a specific type of lien. There are many types of liens – mechanics, state tax, federal tax (IRS), HOA, etc. Sean Fri Oct 14th 2011 at 12:48pm

To elaborate - A “judgment” lien refers to a lien that results from a “Judgment” issued by a Court. It normally is for money,. Once the Court awards Judgment, you have the Court clerk issue an “Abstract of Judgment” and record it in any county where you think the debtor owns property. miket Sat Oct 15th 2011 at 12:05pm

So these judgments will be wiped of if junior to deed of trust in foreclosure? Sat Oct 15th 2011 at 3:12pm

Yes. miket Sun Oct 16th 2011 at 1:10pm
