Tax Sale Overview:

If Dallas county, Texas is unable to collect real estate property taxes they are also unable to provide important government services like police protection, public schooling and medical services.

Unpaid property taxes create a serious cashflow problem for Dallas county, Texas.

Property taxes that are delinquent are added to any previously uncollected taxes on a parcel of Dallas county. Parcels whose taxes are subject to sale will be advertised in a Dallas county newspaper of general circulation. They are listed by sequence number. Parcels fall into 1 of 2 groups. Each group is sorted by parcel number.

The advertisement appears about three to six weeks before the Dallas county tax sale auction and is also posted on the Internet.

To solve this problem Dallas county, Texas allows investors to pay off these taxes. In exchange the investor receives the Dallas county, Texas lien for taxes. A tax lien is simply a claim for delinquent taxes.

Why would investors do this?

Well, depending on Texas laws and competition, savvy Dallas county tax sale investors can realize high-yielding returns with Texas tax lien certificates and/or purchase real estate for a fraction of its true market value with Texas tax deeds.
