Foreclosure/federal tax liens on real property in Ohio


Do federal tax liens survive a sheriff sale on a property (remain attached to the real estate)?  Thank you.

Sometimes.  They do have a right of redemption  This is somewhat of a case by case basis.  

They can always go after the seller in different ways.  Garnishments.  Going after bank accounts.  Etc.

I would double check with a local tax attorney to see what normally happens in your area.
