It will not have much of an impact if that is all there is and you are not late anymore. If it is a credit card that you were late on, it would not hurt to call the bank and ask them to remove the 30 day delenquency from your record. They might do it if you are a long term customer with good payment history.

Can a paid settlement to the collection agency be reported as paid as agreed?

As a general rule the answer is no. Collection agencies will report this to the credit bureau as being settled for less than what was due, which can have a negative impact on your credit report. While paying this money could seem like an effort to repair your credit, it actually can damage it. A situation like this often results from a debt being old and about to fall off of your credit report. If you pay the money to the collection agency then it will stamp a record of such payment for an amount less than the amount originally due. The worst part is that such a record will stay in your credit file for another seven years from the day the payment was received! If you don't make the payment the negative report resulting from that will probably fall off of your credit report much sooner.

When you pay off a tax lien does it reduce your credit score?

PAYING a tax lien has no effect on your credit. What would affect your credit score would be to have the lien released. This is the legal disposition to a lien. Have the release recorded at the same courthouse and send the proof of payment and the release to the credit bureaus. Tax liens have no statute of limitations for how long they can show on your credit report. Having the release recorded and shown on your credit triggers the 7 year countdown for when these public records will be shielded. According to Experian the payment of a tax lien, (which do in fact have statute of limitations of 7 years from the date of payment)payment of a tax lien and the subsequent reporting of the release WILL have a negative effect on your credit score. The logic in the world of credit scoring is this; Once a payment has been made on an old account, this constitutes "activity" on a derogatory credit entry. Recent activity on a derogatory account (even though payment should be considered "good") is considered a negative when computing scores.

Will having a payment plan with a collection agency greatly reduce your credit score?

No. Once a person is being threatened by a collection agency, there is a high liklihood that the damage to the credit report is already done - a chargeoff or collections transline will already be in your credit report. Having a payment plan merely gets the debt paid and on-time payments are usually NOT reported (however, if you miss a payment, that company can and will send a negative tradeline to further damage your credit reputation).

How do credit repair agencies get 30 day late entries removed from the consumer's credit report?

Valid entries cannot be expunged from the consumer's credit report by a credit repair agency or by the consumer themselves, they will remain on the report for the required time period. Furthermore, such agencies cannot do anything that the consumer could not do themselves. That being the case, the consumer should not waste funds paying for a service that is often misleading, unproductive and unfortunately in some situations totally unethical. Actually, the above answer is not correct. According to the Fair Credit Reporting Act of 2003, if the consumer disputes the late payment and the creditor reporting the late payment on the credit report can not prove that the consumer made the payment late, the negative mark must be removed or corrected on the report immediately.
