Tax Lien Automatically Updated on Credit Report

Dear Experian,

I have a tax lien on my report that has been satisfied and released by the State of Ohio and the clerk of courts. How do I report this to Experian and have my credit report show the release of the lien?


Dear RGK,

Experian routinely collects tax lien and other financially related public record information from the courts. Once your tax lien is satisfied and updated to show released with the clerk of courts, it should be updated automatically on your credit report to show it was released.

You also can request that the status be updated by mailing copies of the tax lien release documentation directly to the address listed on your Experian credit report. Please include identifying information, such as your name, address, Social Security number, credit report number, and a brief note indicating which item you are requesting we update.

Once we receive the necessary documentation, the tax lien will be updated to show that it was paid and is released. Paid liens remain on the credit report for seven years from the paid date.

Thanks for asking.
