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.

Answer

Anything 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.

I had to clean up my credit report several years ago and it took a lot a work but was able to buy a house and now have financing through my bank. You will need to have the cash to pay off loans if you want to quickly remove them from your credit report. First contact the creditor and ask if you were to pay off the balance would they take it off your credit report. If they agree to first get a letter from them stating so before you give them any money. It still will take several months to clear off your report. Hope this helps.

first dispute the paid items. If they are paid then they should be removed with this step..

Good question. There are a few tactics to remove collections from your credit report; First, is the debt paid off? If so, the option I would suggest is to write a dispute letter to that specific credit bureau. If the debt has not been paid yet, typically, you can negotiate with the creditor to remove the collection account from your credit report if you pay the debt (WARNING!!! make sure this is stated in writing before you send any money).

First thing you do is call the card 1-800 number listed for that card and report a lost card. They will cancel the card and issue you a new one. Next, you contact the police and get a report and finally you order a credit report to make sure that there isn't more to this.

The first thing to do is to report any dispute you have on your report. The Bureau will evaluate and when proven the correction should be made, then they will correct it. However, the removal is not instant. It will take sometime before it gets totally eradicated.

Anualcreditreport.com is the first choice for viewing your credit report. Another very solid website is creditkarma.com, as this site also offers a credit score.

Not much other than having the collection marked from unpaid to paid. If you are paying off credit collection companies, negotiate to get a letter from them telling you that the amount you are paying is the balance as agreed and that they will remove it from your credit report. Do not pay until you get that letter. If you pay without doing that, it will stay on your credit report for about 3 years depending on when the collection was first put on your credit report. The fact that you paid it already just says on your credit report that instead of unpaid the collection is marked as paid. If you already paid either repair your credit or get a reputable firm in the BBB who has a money-back guaranteed policy.

Any records on your credit report that you diuspute can be taken up with the dispute departments of the three credit reporting bureaus...Experian, Equifax and Transunion. It would also be a wise idea to contact the hospital's customer service department and try to resolve the matter through them first...then contact the credit reporting agencies if not resolved.

A good credit report means that one who applies for a Capital One credit card can get a better deal. First, with a good credit report one can get an unsecured card instead of a secured card. Depending on how good one's credit report is one can get better features, lower interest, and maybe even a platinum card.

An Anthem Report is a instant, merged credit report on a borrower who has a thin or no credit file, the Anthem Report first utilizes any available bureau data as a baseline. It then supplements any bureau data with non-traditional credit data, such as rent payments, utility bills and phone bills. The result is a fully compliant nontraditional credit report that is accepted wherever alternative credit data is honored.

It should have come off no later than 1999/2000. First make sure that it is on your credit report in a place that a lender may see it. Some CRAs send individuals a "complete" report that may not be avail. to creditors or potential creditors. You can also contact the CRAs directly. Experian, Trans-Union and Equifax are the CRAs.

Contact the three credit reporting agencies directly. First get a free copy of your report at annunalcreditreport.com if you have not already. Alternate names can be found under other, alias or aka. Also listed with creditors on your file. If it is under other names variations and you don't have any open account with the misspelling you can have them removed by disputing online, postal mail or by phone providing your personal information. If it however is the primary name on your credit file I have found that not all credit agencies will correct or remove. If accounts are still open with the wrong spelling of your name you should contact the creditors directly and ask them to correct. If the name is not yours and not your account dispute. Good luck.

Bad credit is a problem for millions of Americans, but it is easier than you might think to repair credit. Here are a few tips to help you repair your credit so that you can move forward with your live instead of constantly worrying about the debts that were built up in the past.Get a Copy of Your Credit ReportThe first tip is to get a copy of your credit report. It is nearly impossible to repair your credit if you donโ€™t even know what is on your report. Once you have a copy of the report, you will be able to see what negative items are showing up. This will help you know what you need to work on.Dispute Incorrect InformationAfter you know what negatives are on your credit report, the next step to repair credit is to dispute anything that is incorrect. Credit reporting agencies are required by law to verify the information on your report if it is disputed. They have to do this within a certain amount of time or remove the information from your report. Although some people will tell you to dispute everything, there is no point trying to dispute information that you know is valid. It may be removed from your report temporarily, but as soon as the credit agency receives verification, it will be put right back on your credit report.Pay Everything on TimeAll right, this is easier to say than to do, but it is essential. If you want to improve your credit score, the best way to do it is to start paying all of your bills on time. If you have more expenses than income, youโ€™ll need to work to resolve this so that you are able to keep up with your payments. In the meanwhile, youโ€™ll have to prioritize. By looking at your credit report, you can determine which creditors report to the credit bureaus and which do not. Pay the ones that you know will report late payments to the credit bureaus first in order to reduce the chances of accumulating more negatives before you are able to get your budget straightened out.

Yes the second collection will be placed on the credit report. But they will remove the first collection agency off the report. In some states it is against the law to be double billed by two collection agency for the same debt.

Creditors update credit reports on their schedule, some update every month, others update every other or every third month. If you are in a hurry, contact the credit bureaus and have them contact the creditor themselves. You can sue a creditor, but you have to try contacting the creditor first (via mail), then file a complaint with the FTC, then contact the credit bureaus. If the account still hasn't been updated, you can go ahead and sue the creditor.
