Depends on model, FICO '08 might be at 3 years, or shorter possibly.  The score disparity from my state tax lien with a new tax lien added was something like 50 points when my EQ '04 barely even moved, 5-6 points.

 

ETA: it could well be sooner, my state lien was 12/10, and I was sitting at EX '08 of 718 vs. 660 EQ '04 on 7/4/13.  EX has an additional fed tax lien on it compared to EQ so the report is unquestionably worse.

 

Starting Score: EQ 5 561, TU 98 567, EX 2 599 (12/30/11)
Current Score: EQ 5 771, TU 4 758, EX 2 758, EQ 8 795, TU 8 762, EX 8 786 (7/28/17)
Goal Score:    EQ 5 750, TU 4 750, EX 2 750, EQ 8 800, TU 8 Blah, EX 8 800 (01/01/18)

All valid points.  I didn't delve into the specific scoring models for the sake of brevity.

 

From my personal experience (student loan TLs were a major derog) I suffered severely for the first four years (minor increases), and then began to saw some increases in scoring.  

 

I am now at 6.5+ and did just pick up a pretty interesting data point for my profile.  On EQ my TL open date lists as "N/A" whereas it is correct on EX and TU.  Consequently my AAoA on EQ is quite a bit lower as this account is over 9 years old.  I disputed the open date through EQ and my file updated to list my most recent late as a 120 2 months ago vs 6 years and my score dropped 44 points.  So, that's pretty much exacly how much I gained in 5 yrs, 8 months.
