Tax Lien Questions...

I am in the process of rebuilding credit and feel as though I have gotten off to a good start with the help from the forum. I am ready to attack the tax liens shown on my CR. They only seem to show on my TU and EXP. I am assuming they are some sort of county liens if there is such a thing?? 2 of the 3 are paid in full. They are listed as follows;

 

***** County Recorder

ID # **************

Date Filed, Sept. 2011 

Date Resolved, Feb. 2012

Claim Amount, $160

Liability Amount, Not Reported

Status, State Tax Lien Paid, released

 

 

***** County Recorder

ID # **************

Date Filed, Aug. 2007

Date Resolved, March 2008

Claim Amount, $90

Liability Amount, Not Reported

Status, State Tax Lien Paid, released

 

 

***** County Recorder

ID # **************

Date Filed, May 2006

Date Resolved, Not Reported

Claim Amount, $449

Liability Amount, Not Reported

Status, State Tax Lien Filed

 

Any ideas as to the best way to approach this? I realize I need to pay off the last one listed, but am not sure how to go about removing the paid liens. I have not been able to find anything through the searches I have tried to use. As always, Thanks ahead of time!

Re: Tax Lien Questions...

I'm sorry to report state tax liens can't be removed unless they are inaccurate.  I have seen someone get a state tax lien removed hopefully they will give you some advice. The feds have steps to get a lien removed it makes no sense the state can't have a process for their residents. Good Luck!

Re: Tax Lien Questions...

Liens are usually filed by the court of the county you live in. I have a Federal tax lien that was filed by my local county court and it appears on my CRs as if the county leveraged the lien.

 

I don't know of any state that has steps to get a lien withdrawn from CRs, but you'll have to research your state to find out for sure.

Re: Tax Lien Questions...

I will start some research and see what I can find out about my great state of Indiana. Titanofold, how did you find out that it was a federal lien that was listed through your county? I honestly don't know where to start with this! :-( Thanks

It would state "federal tax lien" in place of "State tax lien". You are going to want to search the states taxing agency website for a form to withdraw the lien, if you cant find one call the state taxing agency and ask how you can get the lien withdrawn. Some states wont allow it and I dont know anything about IN law. Good luck Smiley Happy

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."

Well, there was only one institution that I could have possibly owed $13,000+ to, and it sure as the sky is blue on a cloudless day that I didn't owe any money to my county. I didn't have any other information on my CRs indicating what institution wanted it. It had a case number, though, and was able to get all the details with a little legwork.

 

All you have to do is go to or call the County Clerk's office and you can get a copy of all the paperwork associated with the liens.
