220.815 Liens; priority and filing.--
(1) Nothing in this part shall be construed to give the state a preference over the perfected rights of any bona fide purchaser, mortgagee, judgment creditor, or other lienholder in existence prior to the filing of notice of lien or of jeopardy assessment lien in the office of the clerk of the circuit court in the county in which the property subject to the lien is located. If there is jeopardy to the revenue and jeopardy is asserted in or with an assessment, the department shall proceed in the manner specified for jeopardy assessment in s. 213.732
(2) The clerks of the circuit courts of the several counties shall establish and maintain a file and index book for liens arising under this chapter, in the manner and form prescribed by the department, which shall contain numerical and alphabetical indexes. Each entry in the file shall show the name and address of the taxpayer named in the notice, the tax to which the lien relates, the serial number of the notice, the date and hour of filing, whether the lien is a regular lien or a jeopardy assessment lien, and the amount of taxes, penalties, and interest due and unpaid at the time the notice is filed.
