I have some NY state paid liens, and also a paid Federal lien.
I did pay them all off through payment plans with each respective agency. Somewhere online I'd read that the IRS can withdraw a tax lien only if:
1. The federal tax lien notice was filed too soon or not according to IRS procedures
2. You entered into an installment agreement to to pay the tax lien debt on the notice of lien
3. Withdrawal will speed the collection of tax
4. Withdrawal would be in your best interes (as determined by the taxpayer advocate) and in the best interest of the US government
Now, I haven't called my taxpayer advocate, but I do have legal insurance through ARAG and a very nice general NACA lawyer who would probably look into this for me, but I'm doing my due diligence first. Has anyone filed a motion to vacate a tax lien on the basis of items #2 and #4, above? Been sucessful or know anyone who has been?
Anyone have any advice or input? My public records are basically by only remaining baddies but I only recently finished paying off the liens, so they will be reporting forever unless I have them vacated. I want to go back to school (with loans!), I want to buy a home, I want to just be free and clear to do what I need to do.
Help if you can!

I dont know the answer to your questions,but here's a bump to get your post to the top.
May I ask, When are these lien going to drop from your CR?

There are 3 or 4 of them, depending on the report. I just paid one of them off in January, after having been on an installment plan to honor one after another over the last several years. I finished early 2010 with the very last one. The last one will report into 2017!
