A chapter 7 bankruptcy will remain on your credit exactly 10 years from your filing date not your discharged date. You mention it's been almost 10 years so sounds like it will drop off soon. Public records, such as tax liens stay on for 10 years too. Unfortunately, you can not speed up the process. Paying the tax lien will only report it as a released tax lien.
