The Iowa Department of Revenue is not a credit reporting agency. Credit agencies review liens that are filed at the county courthouse and include state tax liens in your credit history. We file a release of state tax lien at the county recorder’s office after the debt has been paid. If the state tax lien has been released, and the lien is still showing on your credit report, you may need to obtain a copy of the state tax lien release. You may need to send this state tax lien release to the credit reporting agency. Please contact the appropriate county recorder’s office or visit https://iowalandrecords.org/portal/ .
I paid my tax debt. The state tax lien shows paid on my credit report. When will this be removed from my credit report?
The Iowa Department of Revenue is not a credit reporting agency. Credit agencies have their own guidelines on how long released state tax liens stay on a credit report.
