(1) If any person liable to pay any tax administered by the department, other than a tax subject to KRS 134.420, neglects or refuses to pay the tax after demand, the tax due <br>together with all penalties, interest, and other costs applicable provided by law shall <br>be a lien in favor of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. The lien shall attach to all <br>property and rights to property owned or subsequently acquired by the person <br>neglecting or refusing to pay the tax. (2) The lien imposed by subsection (1) of this section shall remain in force for ten (10) years from the date the notice of tax lien has been filed by the commissioner, or his <br>or her designee with the county clerk of any county or counties in which the <br>taxpayer's business or residence is located, or any county in which the taxpayer has <br>an interest in property. (3) The tax lien imposed by subsection (1) of this section shall not be valid as against any purchaser, judgment lien creditor, or holder of a security interest or mechanic's <br>lien until notice of the tax lien has been filed by the commissioner or his or her <br>designee with the county clerk of any county or counties in which the taxpayer's <br>business or residence is located, or in any county in which the taxpayer has an <br>interest in property.
