I applied for a CC and got denied because of a back MD state tax lien that was on my credit report. I had paid the back tax and got the MD comptroller to mail me a letter of satisfaction saying that the amount owed had been satisfied.
I then wrote a letter and sent a copy of the satisfaction letter to the big three. Now, my credit report still has the state tax lien under public records section, but this time it says PAID TAX LIEN.
Anyone have any ideas on how to get the whole record removed? Is this possible - or am I stuck with this mark on credit report for 7 years?
