Why You Received FTB 4921
FTB 4921 is a reminder that ignoring a notice from the FTB, not paying in full amount, or skipping a payment plan could result to this notice.
If you have outstanding tax debt, a statutory lien is automatically placed on all California real or personal property that you own or have rights to.
If you fail to respond to the FTB’s notice, make full payment, or establish a payment plan, they may proceed to record and/or file a Notice of State Tax Lien (FTB 4921) against you. This action is taken to secure and protect the debt you owe and notifies creditors about the outstanding debt.
Obtaining financing or loans with a tax lien on your record can be challenging. Tax liens negatively impact your credit score and may make lenders hesitant to extend credit.
What You Need To Do with FTB 4921
The most expedient way to release a Notice of State Tax Lien is when you fully settle your liened tax debt, including interest, penalties, and fees. Once the payment is received and processed, the FTB will initiate the lien release process.
To achieve this, you have several payment options provided by the FTB:
- Bank Account (Web Pay): For the fastest payment processing, make separate payments for each tax year. Choose the "Bill" option from the drop-down list when making the payment.
- Credit Card: Make separate payments for each tax year using your credit card.
- Check, Money Order, Cashier’s Check: Send a single payment, ensuring that you specify the amounts allocated to each tax year on the payment or include a letter indicating the breakdown.
For businesses to engage in any business transactions or contracts, such as selling real property, it is crucial to maintain good standing status.
