if someone has a tax lien does this mean they spent too much money. they would not have tax if they did not earn money is that correct? in which case it means they spent more than they should? because if they did not earn very much the tax would not be that much and therefore would not be a problem in paying it is that correct? is it possible to conclude that anyone who has a tax lien has spent above their means because if they were poor then they would not have to pay tax in the first place. in short they are not on the bread line other wise they would not pay tax but rather they are spending more than they should through greed not thorugh necessity or poverty. is that correct?
