Tax Lien Release, but Still Being Reported

I had a CA State Tax Lien file back in Jan. 05, and then paid it off by Jan. 06. It's still being reported on EQ is there anyway to get this released lien removed from my CR?

Re: Tax Lien Release, but Still Being Reported

Is it being reported as paid?

Yes, it's being reported as "released" which I guess translate to being paid.

Re: Tax Lien Release, but Still Being Reported

Probably not - but then it is PAID and will hurt less and less as it ages.  I just disputed mine on Experian (not reported as paid), Equifax has it right, not sure about TU, they have to mail it for some reason.
 
How much it hurts also depends on the amount to an extent - mine was pretty small ($640) and happened while we were bouncing around with DH recalled to AD.

Mine is small, $1300, but I have Fed one I'm trying to get rid of. $13,000,yikes!

although figured that it would be removed once it was paid.

I wonder if I could PFD the IRS?

The CRAs will not delete once paid.  State or Federal Tax Liens remain on you CR for 7-10 years from date of release.

If it was filed in error yes that may be true.  If you have a legitimate lien, phone call will do no good.

Re: Tax Lien Release, but Still Being Reported

You are correct-- Released = Paid.
Unfortunately, it won't drop off your credit reports for 7 -7.5 years.
YMMV.
