My ex had a $326 state tax lien in California that was filed 12/97 while we were still married. I took out a loan 6/06 and found out about the lien which I paid just to get it off my record. How many years before it will be off my record, or is it even affecting my credit scores now?

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff 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.
