How do I get a Franchise Tax Board (FTB) lien removed from my credit bureau report?

You must contact the credit bureau agencies directly to modify or to remove a lien from your credit bureau report. 

FTB does not report lien information directly to the credit bureau agencies. 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 (SOS). The credit bureau agencies get the information from either the county recorder or SOS and report it on your credit bureau report. FTB does not govern the credit bureau agency’s policy regarding the length of time or the accuracy of the information they keep on your credit bureau report.
