Arizona Tax Lien Certificate Process
Arizona tax lien sales are held in February of each year by the Treasurer's Office. The sale involves the delinquent taxes for the previous tax year. Bidding on a parcel is for the amount of interest that a purchaser is willing to accept on the amount paid if redeemed. Bidding begins at 16 percent, and the lien is awarded to the bidder who accepts the lowest rate of interest. The investor receives a registered Certificate of Purchase. There is a three-year redemption period during which a property owner can pay off the delinquent taxes. If the lien is redeemed, the investor receives the purchase amount plus the rate of interest bid at the time of sale. Once the redemption period has expired, the investor may foreclose on the lien.
