How to Locate a Tax Lien Sale

Properties sold in the auction for tax liens can be a deal. A real estate tax lien is an interest placed against a part of property for nonpayment of real estate taxes. Tax liens for property taxes are imposed by the local tax collector, such as a county or city government agency. Public auctions are used for tax lien sales. The winning bidder can become the owner of their house or the owner of the lien, based on the place.

Check the taxing authority’s website. The tax collector’s website may have the dates and times of upcoming tax lien revenue available for you to browse. Some local government sites maintain lists of those delinquent properties out there for another tax lien sale.

Assess the general or legal classified ads in papers. Upcoming tax lien sales are often advertised in print so as to satisfy a public notice law requirement.

Telephone the tax collector’s office. The tax-collecting agency in charge of the area you’re interested in can supply you with details on upcoming auctions and direct you to the auction websites.

See local government buildings. Some courthouses and county recorder offices have bulletin boards for posting legal notices, and notices for tax lien sales are commonly posted.

Visit with the auction site. Some areas use courthouses, the county recorder office or the measures of a government building. Upcoming sale notices are posted close to the relevant auction site.
