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?

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the pay off amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
