I would first contact the taxing entity and be sure that you really do not have any tax liens, either federal, state, or local. Then, if necessary, obtain a complete credit report from one of the bureaus to determine exactly which taxing entity it is, then file a dispute if necessary. Even government agencies sometimes makes mistakes.

Federal Tax Lein

More times than one would think, IRS will send a "Notice of Lein" to the County Tax Commissioner, that Office will place a Federal Tax Lein on your Property, it is NOT a Legal Tax Lein, when the "Notice of Lein" is sent, the Lein has not been Perfected, only a "Notice" has been sent.  Check your County Records, if a Perfected Lein is not on File, the Lein has to be removed and you should report this to any Credit Bureau that has the Federal Tax Lein on your Credit Report through a Dispute to have it REMOVED.
