How do you remove a tax lein from your report if making regular payments but can not pay off?
my husband has a tax lien but has been making regular payments for 7 yrs. It is so much that we will never be able to pay it off in full. Will that lien always show up on his credit report?

If your husband is under a Direct Debit Installment Agreement or some other type of Installment Agreement with the IRS, then he can complete the IRS form 12277, Application for Withdrawal of Filed Form 668(Y), Notice of Federal Tax Lien.  Complete the form and send it to the same IRS office he has the agreement with.  They may remove it from his record.  You can get the from from the IRS website.  Best of luck!
