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?

I think a lien remains in the credit report for 10 years. Other members please correct me if I am wrong.

I'm pretty sure it's 7 years because I just had one removed from mine recently and it was almost 7 years to the day. :)

Does anyone know if it stays on my credit report for 7 years from when it was filed or 7 years from when it was paid?

And do paid tax liens affect credit scores?

New question ... can these be disputed? Even though it wasn't legally mine, we were married and was in my name as well and I did pay it, so ... can I dispute it?

Paid tax liens remain for 7 years, unpaid tax liens stay indefinitely.

Paid tax liens are considered a negative notation so I believe they are calculated into your scores.

Any item on your credit report can be disputed. I would dispute it.

I know they remain for 7 years, but is it 7 years from the date I paid it or is it 7 years from when it was put on to the credit report?

7 years from last activity, same as with any other credit report item. so if your payment was the last transaction, then it will be from date paid.

Tax lien is a security interest that is imposed by law on your property in order to secure your payment of tax. Some of the possible reasons for imposition of Tax Lien is: -
1. Delinquent taxes on personal/real property
2. Income tax or other tax payment failure
