Pensacola Florida Tax Lien Certificates

The collection of real estate taxes for properties located in Pensacola Florida is a major priority for the Escambia County Florida 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 Escambia County Florida. If Escambia County Florida 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 Pensacola Florida, Escambia County Florida would literally go bankrupt.

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

In return, Escambia County Florida gives investors Florida 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 Florida tax lien certificate transfers all the rights that come with being the owner of the real estate tax lien from Escambia County Florida to the investor.

When you buy tax lien certificates in Florida, you are paying someone else's delinquent property taxes. What's more, Florida 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 Florida 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, Escambia County Florida gets their money and you get a real estate secured, high-yielding return on your investment.

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

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

In addition, Florida tax lien certificates are secured by real estate. So if you do not receive what you paid to purchase the Florida tax lien certificate plus interest and/or penalties within the law mandated redemption period, then by law Escambia County Florida 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 Escambia County Florida 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 Florida law, mandated by Florida law, and are regulated by Florida 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.
