The only way is time.

Tax leins, Judgements and any other government related accounts stay on your active credit report for 10 years from the day they were paid off. (Date of last contact) They are a part of your Credit History. There is no way to remove them unless you can prove they are not yours. Generally they only count on your score for about 2 years.

Good luck

There actually is several ways you can remove negative from your credit report don't have to wait 7 years first call the creditors and have them update credit file by removing negative information. Or second you can file a dispute through each Credit Bureau and state this account has been paid if creditor does not respond within 30 days the credit bureau has to remove it from your file

If they're paid and in-active, they'll fall off in 7 years.  Not 10.  It use to be, but it's generally about 7, even Bankruptcy.
