How to get a paid Indiana State Tax Lien Removed
Ok I have two liens on my credit report that have been paid for some time. One for $899 and one for $92. Both of them are for Morgan county Indiana and I believe they were for unpaid property taxes. I paid them off in 2012 and they still show up on my credit report but the status is paid. I disputed the $899 one with Equifax and I received this reply “We have reviewed the lien information. Case or ID # − The results are: This lien is currently reporting as released. If you have additional questions about this item please contact: Morgancr, 180 S Main St Ste 125, Martinsville IN 46151−1982 Phone: (765) 342−1077 Lien Filed 11/2011; Morgan County Recorder; Case or ID # −; Amount − $899 ; Class − State; Released 02/2012 Address: 180 S MAIN ST STE 125 MARTINSVILLE, IN 46151−1982 : (765) 342−1077” I contacted equifax and asked them if that meant they would remove it from my credit report and they said no to get it removed from my credit report I would need to contact Morgan County. I contacted equifax and they told me to get it removed I would either have to wait until 2019 or call the issuer so I called Morgan County at the number they provided and spoke with a secretary and she informed me that they do not contact the credit companies. Is there anything else I can do to remove this off my credit report? Also, about how much is this affecting my credit score currently?
