One of the first questions that many newbies ask about investing in tax lien certificates is, are they safe?
Lien certificates aid the government in allowing them to recover tax revenue that is lost more easily. They were created so the government would be able to collect on those back taxes and not have to take possession and ownership of that property.
The county or state taxing authority can place a lien certificate on the property owner when they haven’t paid the real estate taxes or the federal government can do the same for non-payment of personal profit taxes.
When a lien is issued against a property, the owner loses control of said property until the debt has been paid in full. They cannot gift, transfer, or use the title as collateral.
After it is filed, it can be sold at a federal, state or county auction. In some instances, tax liens can be offered over the counter by taxing authority.
Buyers will bid on the lowest amount of interest they’re willing to accept or provided the opportunity to purchase lien certificates at random by drawing lots.
After it is purchased, and the investor pays the full amount on the tax bill, one of two things can happen. If the original owner pays the debt back on time with interest specified by the investor, the lien is then released and the original owner gains back ownership. However, if the lien certificate is not paid in the specified time, the property in question is then handed over the investor, giving him/her full ownership of said property.
This process is completely under the control of the government who makes tax certificates very profitable and safe. For more information regarding the sale of lien certificates, you can contact your state county clerk or Click Here!
