I had a tax lien put on my credit reports in March 2005 with it being released in April 2006. My question is when should it drop off my report. Its been removed from my TU report however its still on both my EQ and EX reports. I thought it would have dropped off already since it was filed over 7 years ago or do they go by the date of release?

Ive had a state tax lien paid in full from california on my experian report since the early 90's they refuse to and will not remove it,
all the other agencies have removed it but experian..
They can legally report a tax lien for 10 years from the payoff date I believe but mine is still there after numorous letters in the past.

The exclusion date for tax liens is as clear as can be:
FCRA 605(a)(5)(3) "Paid tax liens which, from date of payment, antedate the report by more than 7 years."
When you disputed/complained, did they provide you with the reported date of payment upon which they are calculating the exclusion date?
Their must be some difference between the date of record in your credit file and the date your records show payment.
If you filed a dispute, did you then ask for their method of verification of accuracy?
