Under federal law, unpaid tax liens can remain on credit reports indefinitely, though in practice credit bureaus may remove them after a decade or so. (Once paid and released, a tax lien must be removed seven years from the date it was filed.)

Once the line is paid simply ask the max agency to update your credit report or remove that entry on your report. If neither request work, add a statement on your report concerning the lien. When the lien is viewed your statement would follow and gives your side of that issue.

What if the IRS agreed to do a hardship waiver?

Tax Lien

Information I have read states that the IRS has 10 years to collect debt, The statute of Limitations keeps them from persuing any further. There are instances where they can extend the time on lien if you file for any kind of offers that they can then use against you.
