whzt format do I use for requesting a certificate of cancellation

Customer Question

whzt format do I use for requesting a certificate of cancellation of federal tax lien due to statute of limitation

Jax Tax : The IRS should automatically withdrawal the lien within 30 days of the statute of limitations. The liens are themselves also self releasing. If you pull a copy from the Couture recorder, it will have a date "last date to refile" on this date, as it states, the lien acts as its own release. If after this you need the withdrawal, you will use IRS form

Expert:  Jax Tax replied 5 years ago.
Unfortunatley, a credit report is a historcial picture of financial responsibility. For example, it you are late on your mortgage six months, paying current does not remove the latest from your credit report. That said, the lien on the credit report is not an IRS issue. They can't help there. You need to contest the item on the report. Each of the three reporting agencies have a way to do so online. Go to their website. In contesting state there was never a lien not the statute has run. Stating such just admits it was valid. State there was never a lien. Irs will not respond to their request to support the filing and it will be removed.
