Does a bankruptcy or a tax lien stay longer on your credit report?

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(?).
