You can dispute any items on your credit report, including public records like judgments, bankruptcy, foreclosure and tax liens. Items such as these have a significant impact on your credit score. The most important thing about legal entries is having the proper disposition recorded. Unpaid and non-released tax liens have no statute of limitations for how long they can show on your credit report. But the release of lien will trigger the 7 year countdown for when they will no longer show (unless over-ridden by state law). You should be aware that legal items find their way onto your credit report by different means than ordinary trade line. The method of verification varies also. If you have released liens showing on your credit that are accurate; the likelihood of those "coming off" is very low.

When disputing credit report does your score go up while what is being disputed is taken off and for how long?
Answer *feels like a broken record* Credit scores are based on ALL of the information showing in your permanent credit file at the time they are calculate…d. Every piece of information connects to the other pieces and forms a cohesive picture which can only be guessed at. The reason for this is that the Fair Isaac Company (FICO), who developed credit scoring software don't release the methods behind their madness. If they did, who would need them? So any guesses about credit scoring additions and subtractions are based on emphirical data only. Their is a great deal of information about credit scoring online and a little research may give you enough ideas to project which way your score will factor after a deletion. But even a correct guess would only apply to you at this given point in time. (Boy, this was a long way of saying "No one knows".)
7 years, after they are paid off. I have heard that tax liens stay on your credit report 10 years after they are paid off.
If you have duplicate Federal tax liens of the same lien showing on your credit report can you have one of them removed?
Answer Yes, as long as you have the documentation proving the error.
Answer You can dispute anything on your credit report with the major reporting agencies Equifax; transunion and Experian. You can go online and do an elect…ronic consumer dispute form.
Answer The person has either state or federal tax arrearages and a lien has been filed against real property belonging to the person owing back taxes. The …usual due process of law, meaning a lawsuit filed and judgment awarded, does not apply to state and/or federal tax owed recovery methods.
Tax liens can stay on your credit report for 10 years since they are a government entity putting it there. But they should never stay on there that long. You can dispute the t…ax lien with the credit bureaus to get it off. It shouldn't be verified after that long unless you owe an very very large amount. Not being verified it should be removed from your credit report.
Answer If the lien appears on your credit report, you dispute it with the credit bureau. You can do this by ordering your credit report on line and issuing a dispu…te through their investigation department, of course, you will have to provide evidence for your claim.
Paid tax liens normally remain for 7 years beyond the date of last activity. Unpaid tax liens can remain for 15 years.
What is reported is not under your control (unless you can prove it is erroneous). The one reporting it is the one to remove or change it. They of course need to be given a re…ason to release the lien. By satisfying the lien, that is paying it, so there is no more lien, while it will if not be removed from the report, it will be shown as satisfied and no longer a claim. Answer Only the credit bureaus or the one who reported the tax lien can remove. The credit bureaus will remove it if you dispute it and it isn't verified with in 30 days.
A judgement is a finding you owe money. A lien is a method of securing (that means making it a part of the public record) that debt to something...generally property o…r something you could sell. It remains as a claim against the property (or the rights, or whatever). Hence, you can't sell it because anyone buying gets the responsibility of paying off the debt before they can get title or ownership. A State or Federal tax lien just shows the debt originated from taxes.
This can be difficult. There are many considerations. What type of tax lien is it? How old is the lien? How large is the lien amount? If the lien has the potential to jeopar…dize the security of the loan, then you most likely will need to take care of the lien first.
Yes, your Federal Tax Refund can be garnished by the state if you owe backtaxes. It can also be taken for child support and or student loans. In addition to that de…pending on the state your bank accounts, retirement accounts and / or wages can be garnished. Usually a State garnishment will take between 10% and 25% of your paycheck. The best thing to do is to be proactive, contact the State and enter into an official agreement to start paying back on the tax liability. Hope this helps.

Certain mortgage interest paid on a primary residence, meeting some other qualifications, is deductible against ordinary income - as an itemized deduction, if that is wh…at you mean.
Yes and the state doesn't matter on federal income tax returns. Federal is federal and state is state.
The legal answer is that the process of disputing a debt is simple that for disputes. If your only dispute is that you do not want a litigate debt reported on your credit then… you would not legally have the grounds for filing any disputes. If however, the debt is genuinely incorrect or not yours; then you should be able to google "credit dispute" and find sample letters and instructions on the process of assuring that your credit report contains accurate information. I would avoid any company or service that claims to "fix" your credit, as most of the time its just a scam, and they just send the same letters you can download off the internet for free.
If you are in the process of paying it off, ask the state tax bureau to give you a letter for the credit reporting company IF you are paying it off on svhedule in a timely fas…hion. This will not improve your credit score immediately , but when the lien is paid off, your efforts should be duly noted if you initiate the credit repair.
