The recording of the actual lien document will always remain in the public records. If you paid the tax, you should demand the filing of a release of lien. The negative entry on your credit should drop off 7 years after the release is filed.

In any state, liens remain on a property until the debt is paid and the liens are released.

7 years, after they are paid off. I have heard that tax liens stay on your credit report 10 years after they are paid off.

Unpaid tax liens remain 15 years from the filing date. Paid tax liens remain 7 years from the paid date of the lien.

Paid tax liens can stay on a credit record for seven years from the date the payment is made. Unpaid tax liens can stay on a credit report indefinitely.

The Fair Credit Reporting Act allows unpaid tax liens to remain indefinitely on your credit report. Paid tax liens may remain for 7 years from the date of payment.

In most cases 10 years. However, my most recent conversations with CA have indicated that the liens will stay on file even after the 10 years have passed until paid.

A paid judgment stays on a person's credit report for seven years. An unpaid judgment also stays on the report for seven years, but may be renewed. Tax liens are another item that stay on a credit report for seven years, if paid. If not paid, they remain on the credit report indefinitely.

7 to 10 years from the date of entry, some states differ

AnswerThe answer depends upon the public record: Bankruptcies may show for 10 years from the date of filing. However, it is customary for Chapter 13 bankruptcies to be removed after only 7 years.Judgments, foreclosures, civil suits and records of arrest (the last two ordinarily do not show on credit reports) may show for 7 years from their date of entry, unless their is an overriding statute of limitations.Unpaid tax liens may remain indefinitely. Paid tax liens may show for 7 years from their date of payment.Unpaid Tax liens last for 15 years according to Equifax and paid tax liens 7 years from date it was paid off which ever comes first http://www.experian.com/ask-experian/20090121-tax-liens-and-your-credit-report.html

There are different statutes of limitations for different types of liens. Those time limits are set by state laws and vary from state to state. Federal tax liens last ten years plus.

A tax lien does not stay with property, it follows the person. (State and Federal Tax Liens) Other types follow the property....Abstracts of Judgment, Mechanics Liens.....also voluntary liens such as Deeds of Trust, those follow the property as well.

User Avatar

As long as you live if you do not file to have it expunged/removed.

As long as the loan is in force (until the loan is paid off)

Your association counsel is best prepared to answer this question specifically. There are several types of liens, and there may be no standard expiry.

It can be listed on credit reports for up to 10 years. If your question is how long will it be on file meaning the official court docket (a public record), the answer is forever.

Until you clear your debt and your good with the company. After that it will stay on there for about a year but will also have that you paid your money. If you havent paid your debt, then it will remain on your credit history.

User Avatar

Until the lien holder files a release. When that will happen is dependent on the terms of the contract that led to the lien being filed in the first place.

User Avatar

Forever unless paid to a lawyer to get it off

An unpaid tax lien will stay indefinitely, paid for seven years.

User Avatar

The required seven years, the entry should be marked "paid or settled".
