4) Property taxes pay for vital services. 55% to 65% of property tax revenue goes directly to local school districts. The balance pays for police, fire, roads, bridges, parks, hospitals and maintenance of county assets. When you invest in tax liens and tax deeds, you are not taking somebody’s home… you are helping a county fund vital things and giving the homeowners time to fix their situation. It’s a Win/Win/Win. You win a great interest rate, secured by real property. The county wins the cashflow it needs to run their county. And the property owner wins additional time to pay their taxes because you chose to invest.
