From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A tax sale refers to property (usually real property) being sold by a taxing authority or the court to recover delinquent taxes. In the tax sale arena, the taxing jurisdiction is usually the county (the parish in the case of Louisiana, or cities, towns, townships (commonly in the New England states area) - even school districts initiate tax sales in Texas).

Two main methods are used by counties to capture delinquent real property tax: tax deed auctions/sales, or tax lien certificate sales/auctions. These types differ in what is being sold and how (if any) transfer of title or interest is handled.
