Customer Question

Hi Ed,
I have a Georgia state tax lien on my credit report. It shows it was recorded in Jan 2008. I read online at that the lien is released after 7 years, but can also be re-recorded for another 7 years. How can I find out if mine has been re-recorded, and if is hasn't how can I get a release of lien.

Generally after the lien is re-recorded - that information is sent to the credit reporting agencies and reflected on your credit report.
The GA DOT almost certainly re-recorded every lien unless there are special circumstances or a simple mistake.

The Georgia Department of Revenue may publish a list of state tax liens (also known as state tax executions) issued for the collection of delinquent state tax liabilities.

That is public information - and you may simply search for your name.
Another option - to contact The Private Collection Agency Liaison Section and verify your account - _404_417_6700_

When the lien is attached to your real property - that is recorded in the county where the property is located - so you may verify with the clerk.
