Help? - Advice on Removing Paid Property Tax Lien from Credit Report?
20 Years ago my husband cosigned on a mobile home for his mother, since his sister took over her finances and we found out that she did not pay property taxes, which now show up on my husbands TU report as a negative public record. We have proof since then they have been paid and released but we would like for liens to be removed completely. Any advise on getting these removed?

Generally speaking, paid and released tax liens isn't ground for removal (like any other baddies) it supposedly stay on your credit report for 7 years from the Date it was paid. From FCRA 605(a)...


  1. (3)  Paid tax liens which, from date of payment, antedate the report by more than seven years. 

You need to check with the agency/county/State (the recorder's office might be a good start) whom filed the lien to see they willing to withdraw it, every State/counties have different procedures, however most are just about impossible. Sorry couldn't be more helpful.
