Columbus Mississippi Tax Lien Certificates

The collection of real estate taxes for properties located in Columbus Mississippi is a major priority for the Lowndes County Mississippi Tax Collector. Real estate taxes fund local services such as public education, police protection and medical services.

Delinquent property taxes create a serious cash-flow problem for Lowndes County Mississippi. If Lowndes County Mississippi is unable to collect property taxes, they are also unable to fund important government services like police protection, public schooling, and emergency medical services.

Without the tax revenue generated from real estate located in Columbus Mississippi, Lowndes County Mississippi would literally go bankrupt.

To solve this cash-flow problem, Lowndes County Mississippi allows investors to come in and pay off a portion of these delinquent property taxes.

In return, Lowndes County Mississippi gives investors Mississippi tax lien certificates. A tax lien certificate is a document indicating ownership of a real estate tax lien. A tax lien is simply a claim for taxes.

An Mississippi tax lien certificate transfers all the rights that come with being the owner of the real estate tax lien from Lowndes County Mississippi to the investor.

When you buy tax lien certificates in Mississippi, you are paying someone else's delinquent property taxes. What's more, Mississippi actually gives you the right to receive all of the tax money due - including fees, high interest, and penalties.

To encourage delinquent owners to pay their past-due property taxes, the state of Mississippi charges up to 18% per annum on the amount paid to satisfy the delinquent taxes, which is passed directly to the tax lien certificate purchaser.

Everyone is happy, Lowndes County Mississippi gets their money and you get a real estate secured, high-yielding return on your investment.

For "risk-sensitive" investors Mississippi tax lien certificates are the ideal investment. Basically, you are investing your money with Lowndes County Mississippi and when the Lowndes County Mississippi Tax Collector collects the past due taxes, they send you a check, returning what you paid to purchase the Mississippi tax lien certificate plus penalties, interest, and/or late fees.

Mississippi tax lien certificates are safe in several ways. They are safe because the rise and fall of interest rates has no effect on Mississippi tax lien certificates. Unlike the stock market, interest rates on Mississippi tax lien certificates are mandated by Mississippi law.

In addition, Mississippi tax lien certificates are secured by real estate. So if you do not receive what you paid to purchase the Mississippi tax lien certificate plus interest and/or penalties within the law mandated redemption period, then by law Lowndes County Mississippi has the legal right to give you the property - debt free with no mortgage!

So in review, there are two ways you can profit; either you will get what you paid to satisfy the delinquent property taxes PLUS a profit rate up to 18% per annum, or Lowndes County Mississippi has the legal right to give you the property - debt free with no mortgage!

Once you own the property you can do whatever you like; sell it for huge profit checks, rent it for monthly cash-flow, or if you like, even move in with no mortgage payment. The choice is yours, the property belongs to you.

As with all investments, there is always an element of risk. Even if the interest rates are written into Mississippi law, mandated by Mississippi law, and are regulated by Mississippi law, there is a chance of you losing part or all of your investment. You must always try to get the best education and practice safe investing, no matter which investment vehicle you choose.
