Won't remove paid tax lein

Recommended Posts

I've decided to pay off a state tax lein from 1986. It seems as though there is no sol for Indiana, only Ca and NY. They have agreed to settle but refuse to remove from my cr because there was no returned mail in my file. (They sent a bill to an old address) I've discovered that the burden of proof is on the taxpayer. After 18 years, I no longer have proof that my personal taxes were paid. Before I write the check, would the state tax court be a viable option? Or, shall I just pay and have the tradeline on my credit as a "Paid" collection for the next 7 years?

IIRC, the FCRA says it remains 7 years from date PAID!

I've got a couple of my own I'm wrestling with. Once they're paid, you just need to occasionally dispute them in the hopes they fall off.

Sometimes you get lucky like the time I disputed another tradeline on a CR and for some reason they deleted the 3 paid/released tax liens that I hadn't even disputed.

Like life, credit repair is sometimes just a crap shoot.
