Local state/county/city/etc., tax liens remain in full force and effect until paid with very few exceptions.
Your best bet might be to work out some payment schedule with the taxing agency. Some taxing agencies will work with you and some demand cash on the barrel head.
Like lots of other things in life…Try it…the worst that can happen is they say no.
The first may short sell but the tax lien…NO. Taxes pay for the operations of government.
However; if you can convince the first that they are in jeopardy as a result of the tax lien perhaps that would help. But, really you got slim to no chance to get the taxing agency to short sell or reduce the lien.
