Tax Lien Certificate

A certificate that is usually sold at a public auction that represents the debt, penalties and interest owed on tax delinquent property.  The actual physical certificate is nothing more than a piece of paper issued by the county to an investor. 

If the property owner pays off the tax debt, the certificate is considered redeemed and the investor surrenders it to the county.  After the county receives the certificate, the investor is paid the amount of the tax lien certificate including the interest due on the certificate.      

Depending on the state, these tax lien certificates offer interest rates ranging from as low as 8 percent to as high as 36 percent.  Also, in most states, if the owner never pays off the certificate, then the buyer of the certificate (the investor) receives the property.
