They will stay on your credit report for 7 & 1/2 years from the date you paid it off.  It if was a good account, then you want it to report.  If it was a negative account (i.e., collection), you'll have to wait.

Even if it's paid off it stays there like I still owe on it?

Credit accounts will remain on your credit reports for 7.5 years, at which point they will fall off.  When you apply for credit, potential creditors will look at your credit history going back for 7 years because they want to see how well you pay.  Such information is used to determine the interest rate you will be charged or if you even are granted credit.
