Paid tax liens stay on your report for 10 years, unpaid can stay forever. I haven't find a clear answer as how to delete our state tax lien once is paid, but for Fed's? You can request IRS to withdraw it from your report, goto IRS.gov and search for form 12277.

Paying off old negative accounts does not remove them. Accounts stay on your report for whatever the credit reporting time allows. If you find an error like a balance when the balance should be zero or any other incorrect information then you can dispute the incorrect information with the credit bureau(s) reporting it.
