It’s been awhile since I’ve been here but I’m back working on my CR’s again. I have a question regarding a three of tax liens. I have one state and two federal liens I’m dealing with. The state lien is simple, it is on Equifax only and the release was dated on 1999 and I have the release so I’m going to send a copy to Equifax which should get it removed from my CR. Now the other two is where I need the help and advice. The other two are both federal liens, both are listed on all three of my CR’s; both liens were filed in 2006. I have the documents showing the release of both liens. Lien 1 was released on 12/14/2010 and all three CR’s show that release date so my first question is, will it be 7 years from the 2010 date before it will be removed from my CR? Now for lien number 2 I have two release documents showing that it has been released but all three of the CR’s show it is still an active lien with no release date. Now here’s where the tricky part comes in. I received document one from the IRS on 12/14/2010 and in the space where the other documents show the lien release dates, here is an example “*Lien Released* 12/14/2010”. This one says **Self-released**, with no date on it now. For the next question is what does self-released mean? The second question on this document is what is the date I use to count out the 7 years to have it removed from my report? The only date I have found is the lien recorded date of 2/7/2006, the date it was faxed to me which is 12/14/2010 and the last date is on the bottom that states “This notice was prepared and executed at Seattle, WA on this, the 20th day of January 2006. So which date do I use? Now the second document I received was because I had couldn’t find the first one and called the IRS and they mailed me the new document (then I found the first one). It is a document titled Certificated of release of Federal Tax Lien and it gave the date of when the lien was filed and a statement as followed “This notice was prepared and signed at Seattle, WA, on this, the 28th day of Feb, 2012. My plan is (unless someone has a better idea of what I should do) send a copy of the last document I talked about to my daughter still lives in Portland OR and she is going to take it to the county recorder’s office and have it recorded to actually show that it is in fact released. I then plan to send a certified copy to all three CRA to they can record that it is in fact released. So the big question is what date should I work to have the CRA display as my release date? And again is it 7 years from the release date until its removed to my CR’s? I really enjoy spending time on this forum as everyone is so helpful and the answers are so great. I really can’t believe the amount of knowledge that is on this forum. That’s why I keep come back. Thanks in advance of all your help.
