State and it is Ohio
Ohio tax liens are judgment liens and are filed with the clerk of courts. While the procedure you have mentioned will have the lien recorded as released, it won't necessarily remove it from your credit file. A released tax lien can stay on your credit file for seven years from the date it is recorded as released.
The IRS's new procedure is to have the lien withdrawn. This is separate from having it released. By having it withdrawn it is treated as if it never happened in the first place and should be removed from your credit file.
I am not aware of any states that withdraw liens.
