All accounts are reported for 7.5 years past the date they are paid off.  I hope you are checking your credit reports annually so you can monitor this time frame.  And please review the very informative articles on this site since the purpose of Credit Karma is to teach people about credit and how to improve theirs.

All accounts will show on your credit reports for 7-7.5 years from the date they are paid in full because this is the credit history time frame future creditors look at before granting credit. Accounts that were in collections will have an adverse effect on your credit score because of their having had to go to collections (which is a bad thing to have happen).

Please read the articles on this site and use the financial tools provided so you can learn about credit and how to improve yours. 

That is what Credit Karma is here for.
