What are Tax Lien Foreclosures?Posted in Tax Foreclosures, by Jane Scott
Tax foreclosures are properties that have been foreclosed upon due to unpaid taxes, be they property taxes, income taxes or any other such taxes that may be levied on any type of property. This is the most common type of sale. In this type of sale the original holder will be absolutely forbidden to bid on his or her property according to the tax rules in many of the states in the US. This may also hold true in other countries towns and principalities.
This type of foreclosure is usually the roughest of the foreclosures. That is not to say that any of the foreclosures are easy, they most defiantly are not. None of these Tax foreclosures are easy for either party. It isn’t all fun and games when any type of foreclosure is executed on a property, no matter what it is. It is painful to lose property to a tax lien foreclosure. You watch everything that you have get taken away because of whatever misfortune that you have suffered. It is hard to watch your life and property being auctioned off to the highest bidder with no regard for the memories that are tied into this property.
Any type of Taxlien foreclosures property can be taken by force and with a police warrant, especially if this matter pertains to Federal and State taxes. Even unpaid property taxes will put you in this boat with no way to row your way out of the troubled waters. This will be a tough row to hoe, but you can always rebuild. You can’t rebuild a person, but you can rebuild what you have lost. Nothing leaves your life unless something better is coming. You may not be able to see that now, but it will happen.
Each bank or tax official has their own ways of handling the sale of tax lien auction or sale. It varies from person to person. The sale of Taxlien foreclosures properties are generally held at a courthouse or on the property that is being auctioned off. So there is no one set way that the sale of delinquent property is sold. The one constant is the fact that the person that the lien is being held on cannot re buy his or her property back. That is the law. Not even family members can bid on the tax lien property. Again, this is strictly enforced by the law.
An auction that is held for a Taxlien foreclosures type property is a haven for bargain seekers for all sorts of property will be for sale in a tax lien foreclosure. It is disheartening to watch if you are the one that is having your property sold out from underneath you. It is hard for your family. These foreclosures are the hardest of the sales for all involved, even though you may not think that part is true. The tax officials do have hearts, but the law is the law and even they are not above the law. Think about that the next time that you see someone get their property sold out from under them.
