I hope that someone here can help me with a problem. After much reading of TMF boards, I decided to pull my credit reports to check them for errors. So, I started with Equifax. When the report came in, it showed a tax lien for state taxes (correct--somehow I had forgotten to pay my taxes one year, and because of several moves, never got notified of arrears) which I knew had been satisfied. (I am in a job that requires confirmation by our state legislature. The first thing I did when hired 5 years ago was to check with Revenue and Taxation for any potential problems, found out about the lien, and paid it right away.) I also knew that the paperwork had been filed at the local courthouse showing the release of the lien, because I have a copy.

So...I send Equifax the correction, giving them the document filing number so that they can verify that the lien has been satisfied. I come home today, only to find a letter from Equifax stating that they have verified that the lien was properly reported and that there is no record of it having been released!

What do I do now? I want to get this cleared up before I move on to the next credit reporting agency. I'm not looking to buy a house or anything in the next 2+ years, but I know that the longer this problem exists the harder it may be to correct.

Any suggestions, fellow fools?
