Additional Notes:

Multiple Tax Sales: As far as Oklahoma is concerned, at 8% per annum it doesn't provide the biggest rate of return. However, it does keep the competition down.

The Oklahoma tax sale process can be a bit confusing but I'll do my best to make sense of it. First you should know that Oklahoma has three tax sales;

  • Tax Sale
  • Resales and
  • County Commissioners Sales
  • The "Tax Sale" is held each year on the first Monday in October (Sec. 68-3107 New Window). The winning bidder receives a tax lien certificate which draws interest at 8% per annum subject to a 2 year redemption period.

    Any tax lien not sold at the "Tax Sale" is assigned to the county and can be purchased over the counter anytime prior to the expiration of the 2 year redemption period (Sec. 68-3108 New Window).

    The "Resale" or second buying opportunity includes properties which remain unredeemed for a period of two years from the date of the sale..." (Sec. 68-3125 New Window) and occurs the second Monday of June each year. The winning bidder will receive a treasurers or tax deed. Any propery not sold at the "Resale" will be struck off to the county.

    The "County Commissioners Sale" or third buying opportunity includes properties not sold at either the "tax sale" or the "resale". At the county commissioner sale "Properties are sold by the treasurer at a price approved by the county commissioners" (Sec. 68-3135 New Window).
