tax liens negatively affecting my score
In July 2011 I opened a business in my name, and it was closed in Jan 2013. It was under an umbrella company who took care of all the sales tax, so we claimed all "0". I officially shut the business down of April of this year, but the entire time of it being opened, I accumulated 19 tax liens on my credit. I wrote a letter on the first of August to the 3 credit bureaus disputing it, and they sent a letter back. What I'm having a hard time understanding is why only 8 of them got released, and the others are titled "paid" and "filed". Also, why I the released ones are still on my credit? They should all have the same, but it is negatively effecting my credit- how do I get them ALL OFF?
