If you owe money to collections and you pay it can you get these items removed from your credit report?

It is always a good policy to attempt this. But whether or not you succeed in getting a paid collection account removed from your credit report is totally within the discretion of the creditor. There is no law that requires or compels credit reporting. The Fair Credit Reporting Act states that IF an account is reported, then it must be correct. Therefore, collection agencies and creditors usually will tell a consumer that they "must" by law report the accurate nature of the account, which would be a paid collection, as opposed to removing the account.
