HOW TO PROFIT FROM TAX LIENS’ HIGH INTEREST RATES
Tax liens certificates pay an outrageous interest rate. Outrageous!
Local governments can pay 16%, 18%, 24% up to 36% interest on a tax lien certificate. It depends upon the state and the county.
Now, could I name off all the states? Yes, but you don’t want me to rattle off all those states.
Half of the states in the United States and half of the counties will sell tax lien certificates. The other half will actually confiscate the property.
Today is all about how to profit from tax liens. The best way to do that is to get started. If you don’t get started, you’re not going to make any money, and you’re going to make big time money on this.
I would test it with some small investment to make sure you feel comfortable, but I have many investors that invest $50,000 and $100,000 on one certificate.
What if a shopping center didn’t pay their taxes?
They would issue a tax lien, which becomes a certificate. You could buy the certificate, and it would be earning 16% or 18% or 24%, even 36%. It just depends on the state and the county you’re going to buy in.
Is your money safe? Absolutely. You’re investing with the county, and you’re going to get a check back from the county. It’s not going to get any safer than that I can tell you.
HOW TO PROFIT FROM TAX LIENS – WHAT IS A TAX LIEN?
So let’s talk about how to profit from tax liens. I want to answer some of your unusual questions.
Let me tell you this. This sounds like it’s unbelievable.
I didn’t invent the system. It was invented by a combination of a state legislature and the county getting together and saying, “Look, we have to collect the taxes.”
Why do they have to collect taxes?
They have to collect the property tax because that’s what pays for the schools to build them and to have school teachers. They also pay for the county sheriff, the police department, and the firefighters. You’re getting the idea.
Not only does a county have a lot of employees, but the county has many bills to pay, and they must be paid.
The money that they get is coming from tax lien certificates or tax deeds, depending upon the state.
HOW TO PROFIT FROM TAX LIENS – PROPERTY TAX
Every property across the United States is taxable with few exceptions. If the property owner doesn’t pay the tax that means they lose the privilege of owning a property.
If you’re a property owner, you have freedom. You have freedom to rent it, or you could put crops on it or put cattle on it. You could subdivide it or do any number of things with the property.
However, the one thing that you must do is pay taxes. If you don’t pay taxes, you lose your freedom to own that property. The local government would confiscate it.
Since the government has a lot of bills to pay, they’re going to be pretty strict about collecting these taxes. There are severe penalties in some of the states. The severe penalty is they confiscate.
HOW TO PROFIT FROM TAX LIENS – HOW DO TAX LIENS WORK?
Half of the states, or almost half of them, sell a tax lien certificate.
Keep in mind, if you buy a tax lien certificate, you’re not buying property. What happens is you’re getting a certificate that’s going to earn you money. You will not get possession of the property at least not immediately.
You might get it when the certificate expires, but basically with tax lien certificates, the property owner stays in the property.
Why do they stay? Because the legislature and the county said they could stay there.
They’re in the hopes that the homeowner of that property, if they are sick, will recover from their sickness, or if they lost a job, will get another job, and pay their taxes.
HOW TO PROFIT FROM TAX LIENS – TAX LIEN STATES ARE BENEVOLENT
So tax lien states and counties are benevolent. They’re not trying to throw people out. The people get to stay in the property.
Half of the states will sell tax deeds. With tax defaulted property, which we’re not talking about here, they’re going to kick those people out. They’re going to evict them. They don’t hold back a little bit about it.
HOW TO PROFIT FROM TAX LIENS – ARE TAX LIENS A SAFE INVESTMENT?
So today, you want to learn how to profit from tax liens. This is easy business to learn. Everybody can do it.
And like I said, I have a free gift for you. Be sure to get the FREE Safe Haven Investor System course (valued at $197).
The local counties sell tax lien certificates. So keep that in mind.
The local counties do that, and that’s what makes them safe and secure. You invest directly with the county when you buy a tax lien certificate. You don’t invest with me.
This is a safe and secure investment that you can make using your laptop from your kitchen table. So you’re starting to get the idea how that would really work out for you.
Tax lien certificates are powerful. The beauty of the power they have is it’s a nice, safe investment.
When you invest with the local county, they’re going to make sure that your money is safe and secure. Every time you get paid off, the county’s going to pay you, and you can do what you want with your money.
HOW TO PROFIT FROM TAX LIENS – A BUSINESS OF ABUNDANCE
If you re-invest it with the profit and the principal, and you keep doing that over a period of time, generally you’re going to have a lot of money.
How do tax lien sales work?
Tax liens and tax deeds happen in all of the states. A little less than half of the states will have tax lien certificates.
There’s plenty for everyone, and typically this business works for everyone.
If you buy a tax lien certificate, and you don’t get paid, you’re going to get the property.
HOW TO PROFIT FROM TAX LIENS AND GET A MORTGAGE-FREE PROPERTY
Let me say that again. If you don’t get paid on a tax lien certificate, the county is going to give you rights to own that property. That’s right. They’re going to award you the property, ultimately with no mortgage on it.
So, when a tax lien auction takes place, it wipes out the mortgage. That’s right. It’s exed out. It’s gone. They wipe it off the records.
Why did they do that? Because it’s the law.
The law requires that they sell property at tax auctions. The mortgage is wiped off the property.
I don’t make the rules. The legislature makes the rules and then they have the county execute that.
HOW TO PROFIT FROM TAX LIENS AND GET PAID
If you buy a tax certificate, how do you get your money?
Well, you buy the certificate from the government, maybe online or offline, and you send them the money.
When the people come in and pay the tax, then they’ll call you, or they’ll send you an email, and say, “Look, the taxpayer has paid, and we have your money.”
If you did it online, they’ll just put the money in your checking account.
If you sent a physical check to them, then they’ll send you back a check for all of what you invested plus the high rate return.
HOW TO PROFIT FROM TAX LIENS – BEST COUNTIES TO BUY FROM?
Where are the best counties to buy tax lien certificates? There are 1,500 of them. I can’t tell you the best one.
Places like Florida are a mecca for people that want to do that. A lot of people are buying tax liens in Florida. In the months of May and June, the state of Florida will have over 1 million certificates available, and they pay 18%.
A place like Illinois pays 36% on a tax lien certificate. A place like Iowa pays 24%.
So there are a lot of good places.

HOW TO PROFIT FROM TAX LIENS SAFELY
There are a couple of things you want to be careful of. There are two mistakes that people make at these auctions, and those two mistakes can cost you a lot of money.
So to avoid making mistake number one, don’t buy any property that you haven’t looked at.
What if it was right next to a chicken barn that smelled awful? You wouldn’t want that property. What if it’s next to a noisy railroad? What if there had been a fire, and it burned down?
When you buy at the auction, you’re buying the property as-is. So you need to look at the property relatively close to the auction.
The second big mistake that people make is they get caught up in the auction, and they’re so excited about getting a property that they’re going to buy something. So they keep bidding until they get something.
The objective is to buy a property that has plenty of margin. You don’t want to buy a property unless you already know what that profit margin is. In other words, you need to have an exit strategy.
The exit strategy is just as important as purchasing the property.
So don’t buy a property unless you’ve looked at it, and you’ve already planned your exit strategy because you may pay too much and then you’re in trouble.
We hope you enjoyed Ted’s lesson on “How to Profit from Tax Liens.”
