Remove IRS Tax Levy From Your Credit Report

Author : Jerry Mizutanij


A tax lien is just granted property interest over a piece of property to insure that a debt or obligation is met. An irs tax levy can be stated to be a tax levy placed on a property to secure payment of taxes. They are imposed when there has been a failure to pay taxes, which could be any tax like personal property tax, real property tax, income tax or any other delinquent tax. That is, if you have not paid your tax and have omitted to pay it even after demand, the tax amount along with any fines and interest will become a tax lien to the government beginning with any real or personal property belonging to you. This is placed on your property to ensure that before the property is sold the indeterminate taxes are paid up, either by you or by the buyer.

If a tax lien has been installed on any of your real estate or personal property, it will appear in your credit report. It can affect you for a long period and if you are wondering "How long does a tax lien stay on your credit report", here are the answers: Paid tax liens proceed to appear in the credit report for seven years from the date of paying the tax lien. In case, the tax lien has not been paid, it will remain for a minimum period of 15 years; in some cases it may remain forever. Equifax and TransUnion show due tax liens indefinitely while Experian shows it for 15 years.

This action will affect your credit rating in a very negative way and in turn will ruin your credit score. This means that your credit worthiness in the loan market is brought down and you will be perceived as a high risk debtor. Your ability to find a lender for any future loans could be seriously affected by this. Therefore, it is valuable that you remove an irs tax lien from your credit report as soon as possible. The only way you can do this is by paying the indeterminate taxes in full and ensuring that the tax agency removes the tax lien, by showing them the receipt for your paid taxes. You should also make sure that the tax settlement is reflected in the credit report - please note that only the severity of the lien's impact on your credit rating is reduced, as the lien will continue to appear for seven years in your credit report.
