state tax lien

I had a Ohio state tax lien that was settled in 2007, but i failed to file it with the court for the release until an idiot i know.....i wrote a dispute and sent a copy of the release to the courts showing the date it was satisfied, but they still show the aged date as this legal or an error on their part?  guess my question is....since i didn't file it with the court until 2010 is this the actual release since the court had a filing fee???.

Thanks for any help.

Re: state tax lien

I believe you are right.  They use the date you actually filed the release.

Re: state tax lien

FCRA 605(a)(3) defines the period of credit reporting inclusion for tax liens as:

"Paid tax liens which, from date of payment, antedate the report by more than seven years."

Date of recordation with the court is not the defined date for calculating expiration of credit report inclusion.

Payment of liens is documented by a "Certificate of Lien Release."  Do you have a certificate of release of the lien?

Re: state tax lien

Yes, I have the release the state sent me. I payed the tax off one month after they filed it against me. I just didn't record it in a timely manner. I sent the cra a dispute and a copy of the release, but still didn't change the aged date. What would be your recomindation and - truly appreciate your help.
