Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
I'm not sure I understand your question. If you mean in the court records, you can take the lien release letter to the clerk of court and they will remove it there.
I still don't see you coming into the chat. I'll move us to the "Q&A" mode. ,,, Maybe that will help ... (We can still continue a dialogue there, just not in real-time chat as we can here)
Again, you can take your Release of Lien letter to the clerk of court and they will remove it. If I've misunderstood your questoin, let me know and we can go from there.
Let me know...
No I understood your point , but I could probably have been more clear than I was.You will need to go to the website I linked for you: https://www.ftb.ca.gov/individuals/liens/liens.shtmlYou'll see there, that FTB "SAAAAYS" that they will file the release of lien with both the secretary of state and the county recorder's office JUST as they filed the lien itself. That's what removes it from the "public record."Or at least they imply it....Here, again, is how they put it:"The Notice of State Tax Lien and Release of Lien become public information after being recorded at a county recorder’s office or filed with the California Secretary of State."My experience is that they are much quicker about filing the lien, than they are about filing the release.In many states, the individual has to go the place where it was originally filed (varies by state ... many times it's the superior court for the individual's county of residence) and file the release for themselves.It appears to me that CA is essentially passing the buck by telling you NOT SPECIFICALLY that they WILL file it, (even though under common law they are supposed to) but rather that (quoting them again) the liens and releases "...become public information after being recorded at a county recorder’s office or filed with the California Secretary of State."Finally, it becomes even more apparent that the individual should do it when looking at that site and seeing that they provide a link for every county (to get a copy of the release) ...... implying to me, that you'll need to go to both the secretary of state and the county recorder's office for your county and file it yourself.I'll do what research I can .... check back here in a few minutes, but it MAY be that you'll have to call the secretary of state's office and your county recorder's office to see what they say is the procedure for filing the release with them.Again here's the site that I'm quoting: https://www.ftb.ca.gov/individuals/liens/liens.shtml... AND ... this is the same site (same page, a little further down the page) where you should be able to get a copy of the release under the appropriate county link.Let me see what I can find about the specific procedures for filing at those two offices ... check back here, if you would, in a few.Lane
Main Number:(NNN) NNN-NNNNbr/>Legislative Office:(NNN) NNN-NNNNspan class="Apple-converted-space"> Communications Office - Media Only:(NNN) NNN-NNNNbr/>Administration Office Fax:(NNN) NNN-NNNN/p>Email: Legislative and other inquiriesIf you'll give me your county, I can dig a little there too.If you'd like, I can call tomorrow to see if I can get some specific procedure for you.And finally, I'll be looking at the California code tonight... My guess is that, as in most other states, they are required to file the release with public records themselves.Let me knowI'll keep looking
Yes, go to the web site I gave you, get a copy of the release and then file it with the county recorder in your county.
OR if you already have a copy, take it to the county recorder's office in your county and ask them to file it
Again, the tax board is supposed to do it, but you can always do it yourself
