Georgia Is a Redeemable Tax Deed State

So, is Georgia a tax lien or tax deed state? Well, you’re in for a big surprise. Georgia is a redeemable tax deed state. That simply means that since the property owner didn’t pay their property tax, the county is going to issue a tax deed and sell it at auction. But, it’s redeemable.

Now, what does that mean? How do tax deeds work in Georgia? That simply means that if I buy that deed at the auction, it’s redeemable. For up to 365 days, the property owner can come in and redeem the deed.

I invest my money, but I don’t get possession of the property. I have to wait one year.

Now, hold on and listen closely because if you get this, you’re going to be able to make a lot of money in this business.

How Redeemable Deeds Work in Georgia

Once I purchase a redeemable deed in Georgia, anytime that the homeowner comes in to pay, they have to give me back all my money, plus 20%.

If they come in in 10 days and pay me, I get all my money back plus 20%, and it works all the way up to day 364.

How to Buy Tax Lien Properties in Georgia

Most homeowners will redeem the tax deed. Some of them will do it very quickly in 10 days or 25 days. Others wait all the way until day 365.

It doesn’t matter when they redeem it, they’ll always have to give you back all your money, plus 20%.

When I say, “You’ll get back all your money,” you invested with the government, and you’re going to get a check back. You can be comfortable knowing this is a predictable, certain and secure deed.

What if they don’t pay after 1 year? If they don’t pay you, then you can get the property. However, I’m going to tell you that I prefer you don’t get the property.

I would tell you to let the deed rollover into the 2nd year because on day 366, you’d earn 30% on your investment.

If it goes into the 3rd year, you’ll make 40%, and into the 4th year, you’re going to make 50%.

What are we talking about here? We’re talking about a passive investment. You buy that redeemable deed, and then you sit on your rusty dusty. You don’t have any work to do.

How Do Tax Deeds Work?

How do tax deeds work? They’re selling the property, and that’s what they’re doing in Georgia.

However, they try to be good to the homeowners by allowing them to come in and pay back whatever the bid was, plus a 20% penalty. They’re not just trying to kick people out of their homes.

What kind of investment are tax liens and tax deeds? They’re the safest in America. This is an alternative investment that the government created 200-years ago.

This is a low risk investment because if you don’t get paid, you will get the property.

How Much Do Redeemable Deeds Cost?

There are 159 counties in Georgia, and they all are authorized to have an auction, which they do once a month in Georgia.

Where does the bidding at these auctions start? It generally starts somewhere very close to the back taxes.

For example, property taxes are usually 1% to 1 and a half percent. So, if a property is worth $100,000, it’s going to have at least a $1,000 dollar tax bill. What if it was behind 2 years? Then suddenly, it’s $2,000 or more plus some penalties.

The point is if you could buy for that price without a mortgage, have you just made the deal of your lifetime? You definitely have.

Can you make $25,000, $50,000 or $100,000 on a deal? Absolutely.

There’s something for everybody, they’ll never run out. You can’t buy them all; it’s impossible.


We hope you enjoyed Ted’s lesson, “Is Georgia a tax lien or tax deed state?”

Georgia is a redeemable deed state, which means that they sell you the deed, but the property owner is given a year to redeem it. If the property owner redeems, then you get all of your money back plus 20%.

If the property owner doesn’t redeem, then you get the property, or you can choose to let it rollover.

If you let it rollover into the 2nd year, then starting on day 366, you get your money back plus 30%, or you can let it go into the 3rd year and get 40%, or 4th year and get 50%. I’m sure you’re seeing how lucrative this can be.
