(1) A notice of tax lien shall be a lien upon the debtor's property located anywhere in the state for a period of seven (7) years from the date of enrollment unless:
(a) It is sooner released by the department; or
(b) The department reenrolls the notice of tax lien before the expiration of the seven (7) years. There shall be no limit upon the number of times that the department may reenroll notices of tax liens.
(2) In the event that a notice of tax lien lapses on the expiration of seven (7) years, the notice of tax lien may, at any time thereafter and in the sole discretion of the department, be reenrolled. A notice of tax lien that is reenrolled pursuant to this subsection shall be fully enforceable as of the date of reenrollment; however, any notice of tax lien that is reenrolled after the lapse of the seven-year period shall lose the priority it had prior to its expiration. There shall be no limit upon the number of times that the department may reenroll notices of tax liens in this manner.
(3) If the department reenrolls a notice of tax lien, the notice of tax lien in regard to that reenrollment shall contain the following information:
(a) The name and last-known address of the debtor;
(b) The name and address of the department;
(c) An indication that the notice of tax lien is for a previously enrolled lien;
(d) The tax lien number assigned to the lien by the department; and
(e) The basis for the tax lien, including, but not limited to, the amount owed as of the date of reenrollment in the tax lien registry.
(4) The reenrollment of a tax lien in the tax lien registry within the seven-year period shall constitute a continuation of the tax lien appearing on the judgment roll of the county as it relates to real and personal property belonging to the debtor in that county; however, the reenrolled tax lien shall attach to all property and all rights to property belonging to the debtor, both real and personal, tangible and intangible, located in any and all counties within the state as of the date of the reenrollment in the tax lien registry. A notice of release of tax lien filed in the tax lien registry shall constitute a release of tax lien within the department, the tax lien registry, and/or the county in which the tax lien was previously enrolled. The information contained on the tax lien registry shall be controlling, and any inconsistencies found between the tax lien registry and the judgment roll of any county shall be superseded by the tax lien registry.
