Salt Lake City, UT asked in Tax Law for Montana

Q: What law(s) in particular can you cite concerning reversal of a quitclaim from one family member to another?

I already know that if you do a quitclaim from one family member to another, without charging them money for it, while there is currently no lien on the house Just to file bankruptcy that the quitclaim is going to end up getting reversed by a judge. However, I have been told by a lawyer outside of Justia that if you quitclaim your property over to a family member for free, and their was no lien from the I.R.S. on that property when you did, nor was there a letter from the IRS saying that they were going to place a lien on the property, then unless you just did the quitclaim so that you could file bankruptcy the IRS cannot legally put a lien on the property nor reverse the quitclaim because the reality is that somebody else owns the property and pays the property taxes on it. Please let me know of any way that the IRS can still legally seize this property from the new legal owner. Please let me know which law(s) can allow the IRS to do this. This isn’t a question on what banks can do.
