Nebraska Tax Sale Certificate Attorneys
A tax sale certificate is issued by the county treasurer when the real property is sold for nonpayment of real estate taxes. It is evidence of the lien for general real estate taxes purchased by the tax sale certificate investor. The tax sale certificate investor earns interest on its investment at a rate set by statute, which currently is fourteen percent (14%) per annum.
The property owner has the opportunity to redeem the property within the legal redemption period by paying off all taxes and charges. If the property owner fails to redeem the property by paying the taxes and charges, the purchaser of the tax sale certificate can request a treasurer’s tax deed from the county treasurer or foreclose on the property to obtain the title to the property.
Although tax sale certificates are a relatively safe investment, one must follow the statutory procedures carefully in order to avoid losing the investment by failing to properly apply for a treasurer’s tax deed or foreclose on the lien represented by the tax sale certificate.
