Good news! The IRS has extended the tax deadline to April 18th! As long as you submit your federal return by midnight on 4/18/2018, you won't be considered a late filer for your federal return. Direct debit tax payments that are submitted with your federal return (or on the IRS website) by 4/18 are also considered timely filed ×

Something is incorrect on my Equifax credit report. How do I dispute an item with Equifax?

If you find an error in your Equifax credit report, you’ll need to dispute it directly with Equifax. But we can walk you through the key steps of the process so you know what to expect.

Step 1: Filing a dispute for errors in your Equifax report

Step 2: What to expect after you contact Equifax

  • The investigation process for disputes through Equifax is typically completed within 30 days, but can take longer in some cases. Once the investigation is complete, Equifax will let you know whether the information will remain, be modified, or be removed from your report.

Step 3: Seeing the change on Credit Karma

  • If your dispute results in changes to your Equifax credit report, the information you see on Credit Karma will be corrected once we receive the updated information from Equifax. Please note that Equifax must make the initial change. Credit Karma does not edit any of the credit report information you see.
