Tax Liens

How long does a Federal tax lien stay on a property?

I’m asking because I was looking at this property and discovered a tax lien!

It was put on the property in 1991 and in 1995.

So does that mean it comes of after 4 years if it still hasn’t been paid?

Can the government keep putting it back on until it is paid?
