Question: Will paying my taxes late affect my credit?

  • When taxes remain unpaid for more than 90 days after their due date, the taxes are subject to a tax fifa (lien) being recorded in the Office of the Clerk of Superior Court. These records are public so credit bureaus may access them and may use them to adversely affect your credit.  The tax office does not deal with these credit bureaus and so has no control of how they use the information or how often they update their records.
