I just had this same question that I asked mortgage brokers the last 2 days. The answer is yes you can sell him the home.
He can qualify for a mortgage with the tax lien if he has established a history of making payments. The IRS will attach a lien to the property but it goes behind all other liens. So if you were the second mortgage holder they would go into 3rd position. I’m selling one to a guy and he has $20,000 in tax liens against him. I was told not to worry about it. As long as he make regular payments it is no problem.
