Basically, my old tax debt appears to meet the hurdles for dischargeability. However, I read that all that goes out the window if there is a tax lien. Is that true? How would I find out if there is in fact a tax lien? Does it matter whether or not I have a home?Okay thanks. I guess what I am getting at is if all or some of the monies have a tax lien, would it no longer be worth seeking the discharge. Also, is it true that if an amendment were filed or negotiations took place later (say in 2008 or 2009 for example), that would delay some of the timelines for discharge eligibility?
