I did some research and found info on the web regarding the withdrawal. I honestly thought it was a hoax. I came on CB to check credit card forums and ran it to this! I sent my information off on 7/15. I hope I don't have a long delay but I know I must be patient. The liens are killing my credit, although showing for a while. Everything else is good but the liens. I am so happy about this! It would be nice if the states did this. I will follow up when I hear something back. Good luck to everyone working to have theirs withdrawn!
It is pretty amazing: the IRS being cool!!! What is interesting like you, I have read all I could on tax liens on this great forum and several others with great interest as I have one from CA, one from NY and one from the IRS all PIF from around 2007. (don't ask) Anyway, what I see are many people have these now PAID liens very negatively impacting their lives. The new policy by the IRS will hopefully last since it will help many, many people who have "paid their debt to society" and can now rebuild their credit faster without these millstones around their necks. Now if some of our fair states can start to emulate the new IRS policy, maybe more of us can begin or continue or sort of finish up on the rebuilding and keeping it there process we frequent this place for...
I sent mine in on the 30th of June, it seems by reading this thread its like 3 to 4 weeks roughly till they contact you. Some taxpayers were actually called and most get letters. From what I have read/understand, some taxpayers have the CRA's informed by the IRS, some need to notify all three CRA's themselves, Some taxpayers had just one CRA holdout, Some got them all removed easily. ALL Taxpayers seemed to have a generally positive experience with the IRS, weather it be the IRS offering to send a copy of the withdrawal to the taxpayer to them (the IRS) promising (supposedly) to contact the CRA's for you. This is why I say I hope it lasts because they sound real reasonable here!!!
