According to the United States Bankruptcy Code 11 U.S.C. § 362 (b)(3), an act to maintain or continue the perfection of an interest in property is not a violation of the automatic stay. Therefore, if a sales or use tax lien is filed prior to the date the tax debtor petitions for bankruptcy under a chapter of the United States Bankruptcy Code and the lien is subsequently extended during the course of the bankruptcy proceedings, the lien extension is not a violation of the automatic stay and is not required to be released as such. 5/17/02.
