They are probably about the same. A tax lien stays on your credit report for 7 years from the date it was PAID, not from the date it was filed. I'll let someone else chime in on how long a bankruptcy stays on. I think 10 years(?).
How can I get a lien removed from my credit report what is the statute of limitation law?
The length of time that information remains on a credit report varies as to whether it's a bankruptcy, judgment, tax lien (paid/unpaid), late payment or an inquiry.
You have to, it is a debt...it is just a secured debt...by the lien on the property.
If the bankruptcy is discharged you are no longer responsible for the debt.
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.

untill you pay it off
should show up on your credit report.
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 reason 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.AnswerOnly 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.
usually 7 years
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 dispute through their investigation department, of course, you will have to provide evidence for your claim.
If there is a mortgage/equity loan involved,that loan will report on your credit history. The lien will report on the title of the house. A title search will be conducted if you are selling or refinancing the house.
