Federal and State Liens

Hi All,


I have paid off a Federal and State tax lien. I will need to show zero in order to qualify for a mortgage. Can I go directly to the state and the IRS and have them fax me a release of these liens? Or is there another process I have to take?

Re: Federal and State Liens

The IRS mailed me a release of lien for mine.  We don't pay state taxes in Nevada, so I am unsure of that.  Are you currently under contract or looking to purchase soon?  Your credit reports should update in the next 30 days with a release of lien on them. I do believe you can contact them, at least the IRS, and request the information be sent to you.
