Why does my credit report show a lien from the Illinois Department of Revenue?

We may have filed a lien to make a legal claim on your property as security or payment for past-due debt with the state of Illinois. Even if a debt has been paid or corrected, your credit report may continue to show a lien if a lien release has not been recorded. Contact the Lien Unit to learn more about the items for which we have taken this collection action, to obtain a lien release or payoff amount, or for other lien-related questions.
