score bump from public record falling off?

Should I expect a score bump for a public record falling off? Was just looking at my credit report and saw one will fall off in October of this year. The balance has been paid off for awhile now.  Any info would be greatly appreciated

You might see an increase, but it will depend on what else is showing on your credit reports.   What ( if any ) are the other negatives ?

It's just speculation on my part, but I think you might see a modest FICO score bump when it falls off, if this was your only public record

Just speculation but in my case I had 3 paid/released Fed liens that were on my report since '06 -withdrawn last year and I'm still trying to see the bump. I guess since they were so old, the sting had long past.

State tax liens can be renewed.
