I. YOUR INFORMATION
* Required Fields
II. The Public Record(s) Equifax Reported About You

Did Equifax incorrectly report a Civil Judgment or a Tax Lien about you?

  • A “Civil Judgment” is a ruling made against someone in a civil court, a non-criminal matter. This typically relates to an outstanding debt to a lender or creditor.
  • A “Tax Lien” is a lien imposed by law upon a property to secure the payment of taxes (income, property, or other). This includes both state and federal tax liens.

If your claim involves multiple civil judgments or tax liens, you will be able to enter additional information about those records below.

What was incorrect about Equifax’s reporting of the Civil Judgment(s) or Tax Lien(s)?

  • Select “Ownership” if you claim that Equifax attributed reported a civil judgment or tax lien on your credit report that did not belong to you.
  • Select “Updating” if Equifax reported the wrong status of a Civil Judgment or Tax Lien that belonged to you, for example by reporting a Tax Lien as unpaid when it had been released, or a Civil Judgement as outstanding when it was satisfied or had been dismissed.

III. ADDITIONAL CLAIMS

Did Equifax incorrectly report more than one Civil Judgment or Tax Lien about you?

IV. YOUR DAMAGES

Did you suffer adverse action after June 28, 2015 as a result of Equifax incorrectly reporting a Civil Judgment or Tax Lien about you? “Adverse action” can include, but is not limited to, denial of credit, denial of insurance, denial of employment, denial of housing, higher interest rate, higher insurance rate, lower credit limit, lower loan amount, decrease in credit limit on existing account, or an increase on an existing insurance rate.
