- 1). Prepare a letter to the Internal Revenue Service requesting a release of a federal tax lien due to the expiration of the statute of limitations. You do not have to fill out a specific form or template for this letter, but the IRS requires you to provide the request date, your name and address, a copy of the federal tax lien notice for the lien you need released and the reason for the lien release.
- 2). Send this letter to the proper address for your state listed in IRS Publication 4235.
- 3). Write a letter to each of the three credit reporting agencies: TransUnion, Experian and Equifax. Send a copy of the lien release to each credit reporting agency and inform the agencies that the lien is past its ten year reporting date. The agencies will double check this information and remove the federal tax lien once they have verified that the information is accurate.
