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 tax 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.

Liens are always supposed to be easily found by anyone who cares...they are there to give notice that someone has a claim against that asset (or generally all), that would come before any new claim.
