What would you like to do?
If your credit report show state and federal income tax liens that are 'released' can you dispute them and have them taken off completely?
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.

Tax lien will show paid--it won't be removed unless it was there in error or you have gone to court and had a judge state that it has to be removed. Answer When a tax lien i…s removed because it's paid, the credit agency that reported it can be advised. Go to your local IRS office with the information and they can notify the credit bureau that has reported the lien on you. This happened to me once and the IRS updated the lien information with the credit bureau. I did all this person-to-person, it worked better than the telephone. Answer Anything on your credit report can be disputed at anytime. It all depends on whether it gets verified or not on whether it comes off or not.
An unpaid tax lien will remain on your credit report for 10 years from the date it's filed. A paid tax lien will remain on your credit report for seven years from its date… of filing.
No. Refunds are portions of your income which were already reported but were nontaxable. You do not have to report any income more than once.
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.
The credit reporting companies have a dispute form that you can use to dispute anything that is wrong on your credit report. Ask for this form or send a letter detailing the i…nformation in your report and explain why it is incorrect. They will investigate the matter and send you their findings. If it is incorrect they will remove it from your report.
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.

Answer MOST JUDGMENTS, INCLUDING SMALL CLAIMS, CIVIL AND CHILD SUPPORT, WILL REMAIN ON YOUR CREDIT REPROT FOR 7 YEARS FROM THE FILING DATE.
Yes and the state doesn't matter on federal income tax returns. Federal is federal and state is state.
Unpaid tax liens remain 15 years from the filing date. Paid tax liens remain 7 years from the paid date of the lien.
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.
The only way to have an account removed from your credit report is: 1. To prove the account was a result of fraud. Or 2. To let the account run the course which is 7 yrs. from… the date it was PAID.
A tax lien is considered a significant derogatory item on a consumer's credit report. Being a legal action, it is reported in the "public records" portion of your credit repo…rt. Consumers with any public records showing, even when paid and with their proper dispositions showing, get larger deductions to their credit scores for any other actions. All legal items need to have their disposition. For tax liens, the disposition is called a release of lien. This needs to be obtained by the consumer, recorded (preferably at the same courthouse) and forwarded to the credit bureaus. Unpaid tax liens have no limitations for how long they can appear on a credit report. Paid tax liens will show for 7 years from the date of payment. That paid date would be established by the release.
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.
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.
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.
A creditor can put a lien on federal income tax refunds and usually will when the debt is that of a student loan or child support. Other creditors can if the right paperwo…rk is filed within a specified time frame to the IRS.
