Officially per FRCA 605(a)... Information exclude from Consumer reports...(3) "Paid tax lien, which from Date of payment, antedate the report by more than 7 years."

If its Federal tax liens, you may request IRS to withdraw it, search for Form 12277 on IRS website. There are no uniformed ways to remove the State's tax lien when it's paid/released, and most States' are extremely difficult to remove before 7 years from Date of payment, simply because they aren't the ones reporting/furnished it to the Credit Bureaus, so they cannot remove it. You would need to get the tax liens vacated/expunged from the court's records.

YES

You have to contact the credit reporting agencies with written proof that the liens were satisfied. They will then remove the liens from your file.
