If a negative item is past seven years on my report and the creditor updates it, will it ever come off my report?
I have a tax lien on my credit report. I know it isn’t mine. It belongs to a relative that was living with me. I am having it removed as we speak. I was wondering about how many points does this affect my credit score on average?
How long do public tax liens stay on your report after they have been released?
I filed bankruptcy in 2002 because of divorce. It was discharged with zero assets and zero liabilities. A 1996 Michigan state tax lien still remains on my credit report after 16 years. I understood it was included in the Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2002.
I had a lien on my account in 1999 from the state of South Carolina for payroll tax. I have a letter from them stating that the lien was filed in error, but it is still on my credit report. What can I do?
I have a tax lien release from the IRS. I was going to send it to all bureaus until I read that the credit bureaus get tax lien information automatically from the courts. Does the IRS usually update the bureaus? If not, how and when do you pick up that information?
If I have taken care of tax liens, will they always be on my report, and if they are does it do any good to try and get them removed.
How long do public records – tax liens specifically – stay on your credit report? One source I checked says seven years after the date of filing but another source says seven years from the date paid.
