A tax lien is considered a significant derogatory item on a consumer's credit report. Being a legal action, it is reported in the "public records" portion of your credit report. Consumers with any public records showing, even when paid and with their proper dispositions showing, get larger deductions to their credit scores for any other actions. All legal items need to have their disposition. For tax liens, the disposition is called a release of lien. This needs to be obtained by the consumer, recorded (preferably at the same courthouse) and forwarded to the credit bureaus. Unpaid tax liens have no limitations for how long they can appear on a credit report. Paid tax liens will show for 7 years from the date of payment. That paid date would be established by the release.

The answer depends on a number of factors, such as the degree of the upaid judgment and the credit organization that is offering the pecuniary service. Typically, unpaid judgments stay on credit report for over nine thousand fiscal periods. The related link gives more information.

You can dispute any items on your credit report, including public records like judgments, bankruptcy, foreclosure and tax liens. Items such as these have a significant impact on your credit score. The most important thing about legal entries is having the proper disposition recorded. Unpaid and non-released tax liens have no statute of limitations for how long they can show on your credit report. But the release of lien will trigger the 7 year countdown for when they will no longer show (unless over-ridden by state law). You should be aware that legal items find their way onto your credit report by different means than ordinary trade line. The method of verification varies also. If you have released liens showing on your credit that are accurate; the likelihood of those "coming off" is very low.

Unpaid items and negative information stays on your credit report for up to 7 years. Debts such as unpaid taxes or student loans in default will never come off until paid up current or in full. Remember items that are unpaid do not suddenly become unowed after 7 years they just cease to report on your credit bureau.

Charge offs and most other defaulted debts are expunged (or should be) from a credit report seven years after the DLA.

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.

Unpaid medical bills are on your credit score until they are settled with the company that issued the bills or written off of the credit report. This could be for many years if you are making payments on the account or might end more quickly if you have declared bankruptcy.
