Tax Deed States

Tax deed states are states that allow the general public to purchase real property directly from the county.

Unlike a tax lien state, in a tax deed state the county grants you ownership interest in the property. Each state has its own unique statutes and process for conducting tax sales. Generally speaking, if property taxes are not paid for a specific number of years (varies by state), the county has the ability to sell the property to an investor to recoup the money owed to the county.

The base bid at the sale will typically be for the amount of the taxes owed plus any interest, penalties, and county administrative fees. Since tax deed sales grant an investor ownership interest in the property, most tax sale auctions are a “bid-up premium”.

Meaning the property is sold to the highest bidder. Tax deed sales are only one type of tax sale, with others including tax lien sales and redeemable deed sales.

If you’re interested in investing in tax deeds, you’re inevitably going to need title insurance when it’s time to sell the property again.

Title insurance protects from claims by prior owners and parties of interest in a chain of title. Since the owner and many of these parties lose their interest during the tax sale process, obtaining title insurance can be very difficult.

Our Tax Title Services Due Process Certification will help you obtain title insurance weeks, if not months, before a quiet title action can!

You can even visit our price schedule page to learn all about the different price rates per state. Don’t wait—if you own a tax deed and want to maximize your investments potential, reach out to Tax Title Services today.
