This CLE webinar will provide attorneys and real estate investors an in-depth analysis of crucial issues in investing in tax liens and deeds. The panel will discuss state law requirements, resolving matters related to redemptions and tax sale challenges, IRS liens, and non-investor property rights. The panel will also provide guidance and offer techniques on managing litigation stemming from tax liens and deeds.


Tax sales can provide investors significant returns on a secured investment. Investors and tax counsel must understand state law requirements and pitfalls to minimize risk in the tax sales process.

Tax sales can have serious implications for anyone with an interest in the property. Investors, institutions, and others holding an interest in the property must understand various tax sale laws within the jurisdiction. To identify critical issues impacting an investment in tax liens or deeds, investors must recognize challenges stemming from other lienholders, record-keeping and required notices, tax rules affecting the auction or bidding process, and changes to state tax laws. Failure to address these issues can result in litigation and potential termination of the investor's interest in a property.

Listen as our panel discusses essential matters when investing in tax liens and deeds, the tax sales process and related challenges, and handling IRS liens and other lienholders' interests in target properties, as well as offer best practices for tax counsel and investors.
