Anyone know the details for getting a Tax Lien removed? It's been paid (I think I paid it in 2006 or 2007) I talked to the IRS guy and he said they send a release of lien at the time of payment to the Clerk of public records. but, On my CR it still shows up...not paid or updated......just there. I have the release of lien form from the IRS but and having trouble figureing out what to do with it. I sent it to the CRA's and they didn't change anything....So I'm thinking it needs to go to some clerk, but I have no intentions of going back to Jefferson Parish to the court house. Also would it really be effecting my score at this point? My scores are 696 and 717. this is the only negitive thing on my CR.

Tax Liens can remain for forever if unpaid. They remain for 7 years from date of paying them.
Dispute as "paid".
The lien release won't remove the lien, I don't believe. But you for sure need it updated to show paid.
