Remove Tax Lien Mistake


How do I remove a PA state tax lien that was filed by mistake? My credit score says that it was satisfied but doesn’t mention that it was filed by mistake.The court house will not change the record even though I have a letter from the state saying it was filed by mistake.
Thanks, Mark


Hi Mark,

I am not sure that I understand why the court house will not update your credit report. I would recommend disputing it with the 3 credit bureaus. If the court house is reporting this information to the Credit Bureaus, then you might have a problem. After you dispute and this lien does not go away, I would get a manager involved at the court house and find out why they will not accurately update the credit bureaus. When I say update,they need to have this negative remark deleted because it was a mistake on the states part.

Dispute here.
