Frequently Asked Questions

What is a tax lien?
A tax lien is a lien imposed by law upon a property to secure the payment of taxes. A tax lien may be imposed for delinquent taxes owed on real property or personal property. If not paid by the delinquent date, a certificate lien will be recorded which results in the extra charges mentioned above. Once a certificate lien is recorded, a fee to record a release of lien must also be applied.
