If you’ve gone thru the pages of my website, you’ll notice that I stand by my no BS, no Hype pledge regarding information about how to invest in tax liens and tax certificates.  Almost all of the information (besides strategy) can be found publicly; however, it can be difficult to find without hours of searching.  Here are the most frequently asked for resources and pages regarding tax lien investing:

1) Never heard of tax lien investing?  

Go here for a definition of tax liens and how to get started investing in tax liens.


2) Want to know rates of return and how the process works in different states?

Check out my state-by-state guides to investing in tax lien certificates.

4) Looking for great books on tax lien certificate investing (Amazon affiliate links)?

A Beginner’s Guide to Investing in Florida Tax Lien Certificates – My first E-Guide now available on Amazon Kindle!  I created this to-the-point e-book for new investors interested in buying at the Florida Tax Lien Auction. I priced it at the lowest price point I could as I don’t believe in high priced BS that you’ll find when you search thru Amazon or with other tax lien websites.

A Beginner’s Guide to Investing in South Carolina Tax Liens – My second e-book is out on Amazon Kindle, as well.  This guide not only teaches you how to bid and manage your SC tax liens but also provides strategies and tips that I learned from experience in the great state to buy tax lien certificates in.
The Complete Guide to Investing in Real Estate Tax Liens & Deeds: How to Earn High Rates of Return – Safely
– Good discussion of auction types and state-by-state comparisons. Weak on providing resources and discussing due diligence. The author has little or no direct experience with tax liens, but did great research into the subject.

Tax Lien$ – If you’re going to invest in New Jersey tax liens or already have experience, this is the “go-to” guide. The author is a very experience tax lien attorney in New Jersey. Hopefully, there will be an updated edition coming soon.

The 16% Solution: How to Get High Interest Rates in a Low-Interest World with Tax Lien Certificates, Revised Edition – I think I read this guide about 15 years ago. Haven’t bought the updated edition but the original was a good summary of tax liens and certificate investing but more suited for beginning investors.

      I tend to avoid buying tax deeds directly but I do know several people that have done very well doing so. It’s more a matter of time–buying deeds directly involves alot more work right from the start whereas buying liens allows me some time before I have to deal with the property (if it goes to deed). I’d love to hear any “lessons learned” that you might want to share with my readers!
