Dispute tax lien

Posted on: 09th Feb, 2012 02:45 am
I need to know how I should dispute tax lien that has been released on Equifax.
Hi Guest,

You need to check out whether or not a tax lien has been placed against you. If a tax lien has been placed against you by the state tax department, then it will be reported to the credit bureaus and there is no point in disputing it.

Take care.

If you simply go to the Equifax website, there you will find instructions on how to access their data, and how to dispute information contained on your credit report.

If the lien appears on your credit report, you dispute it with the credit bureau. You can do this by ordering your credit report on line and issuing a dispute through their investigation department, of course, you will have to provide evidence for your claim.

Assuming that your administrative review was unsuccessful, contact the major credit bureaus--Equifax, Experian and TransUnion--to dispute the lien. Include a copy of your credit report and your contact details, along with a signed, notarized letter demanding removal of their recording of the lien. Send the letter by registered mail, return receipt requested. Although they may not remove the lien from their records, they will note that the debt is in dispute, which should mitigate damage to your credit rating while the issue is being resolved.
