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(?).

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.
