You didn't mention whether or not the lien had been paid and released. There is no statute of limitations on the time period an unpaid tax lien can show on a consumer's credit report.

The length of time that information remains on a credit report varies as to whether it's a bankruptcy, judgment, tax lien (paid/unpaid), late payment or an inquiry.

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.

Tax lien will show paid--it won't be removed unless it was there in error or you have gone to court and had a judge state that it has to be removed.AnswerWhen a tax lien is removed because it's paid, the credit agency that reported it can be advised. Go to your local IRS office with the information and they can notify the credit bureau that has reported the lien on you. This happened to me once and the IRS updated the lien information with the credit bureau. I did all this person-to-person, it worked better than the telephone. AnswerAnything on your credit report can be disputed at anytime. It all depends on whether it gets verified or not on whether it comes off or not.

This will stay on your credit indefinitely until it is paid. Once it is paid, it will show a zero balance, but your credit report will still show that you did have a judgment at one time. It will stay on the report for approximately 7 years.

Its from the date it was reported to the agency. It will show that paid if it has been paid, but will remian on your credit report for 7years. Usually liens or levys are in my past experince not reported with a credit agency, when they levy an account or a home, it will show up when you want to refi your home, or sell it. Hope this helps. Actually, I believe it's seven years from the date it is satisfied (paid).

Judgments will remain on a credit report for the required 7 years regardless of the status.

No, and anyone saying they can change the correct history of your report is lying and part of a popular scam that is regularly investigated and prosecuted by authorities. If you have paid the lien, then make sure that the records for all three credit agencies show that. Send a letter and provide the paid receipt. The credit report simply is an information service that provides accurate historical information. From that info, the credit providers try and predict your future likely actions... The history of having a lien, or not paying on time is accurate. They also should be reporting that the lien has been paid and removed. That all by the way will remain part of the permanent records for wherever the claim was filed, all public access. If the accurate reporting could be changed to overlook historically correct items , then the service credit reporting cos sell would NOT be worth anything to anybody.

When you have a lien it shows on your credit rating, this is because money is owed to someone and not paid, also if you want to sell your house the lien would have to be paid off first, it also remains on your credit rating for 7 years.

If the account is legitimately yours, then you cannot legally have it removed from your credit report. However, if you paid the collection account off, it should be reported as paid on your credit report. Still, the accounts will not be removed from your credit report for 7 years.

Now, not too long. Check with the company you owed and see what credit agencies they report to and then contact the agencies directly.

Paid tax liens normally remain for 7 years beyond the date of last activity. Unpaid tax liens can remain for 15 years.
