What Is a Tax Lien Certificate?

A tax lien certificate is a lien on your property for not paying your taxes.  If you fail to pay your taxes off, the county government will auction off your property.  The winning bidder will receive a tax lien certificate as a proof of purchase.  They can then charge interest of up to 50% or they can foreclose on the property and become the owner of the real estate free and clear.
