Hi everyone. I've read success stories of people having state liens where the state refuses to issue a letter of withdrawal removed. I tried disputing and EX removed it, but EQ and TU have refused. I paid my lien and was issued release documentation. TU and EQ are refusing to remove because they don't remove released tax liens. I submitted a CFPB dispute on Friday and submitted my release documentation and requested that each agency deletes it. This is what I said:

I contacted TransUnion and Equifax in reference to an Alabama tax lien. I was not properly notified by the State of Alabama that I had a tax lien until I saw it on my credit report. I was in the military from 2007-2013 and the Alabama Department of Revenue stated that they were sending the letters to my home of record, where I did not live. I was stationed in GA and have documentation to prove it. I was not properly notified of the debt therefore it should not have been reflected on my credit report. I have received a letter from the State of Alabama that the tax lien has been terminated, canceled. I am requesting that this termination and cancellation be immediately reflected on my credit report for TransUnion and Equifax.

I'm now thinking I am putting my foot in my mouth. With the new National Consumer Assistance Plan taking effect in July, should I cancel this request or change what I said? Please help. I really want this lien REMOVED!

As long as you have a copy of the release of lien from the county tax collector and the $ amount and tax year match, you are alright and no added harm in reporting will result. Keep in mind that currently there is only tax relief with the IRS. So, EQ and TU may not remove the state tax lien from your reports. Just like you have experienced so far, EX removed my satisfied state tax lien but TU and EQ won't.
