When does the lien need to be paid?

Upon receipt of the lien. The taxpayer's lien clearly states: "If you do not want your employer to deduct, you must pay immediately." The employer must take deductions from the first pay period following receipt of the lien. Tax liens have an issue and return date. Some taxpayers incorrectly believe that they have until the return date to pay or that their employer can wait until the last pay period to deduct the amount owed.
