Tax Delinquent Property and Land Sales

About

You may request a price quote for State held tax delinquent property by submitting an electronic application. Once your price quote is processed it will be emailed to you. You are given twenty calendar days from the date on the price quote to remit your payment. Your remittance must be postmarked no later than the twentieth calendar day.

If the State has held a tax sale certificate less than three years the purchaser will be issued an assignment of the certificate. If the State has held the tax sale certificate over three years a tax deed will be issued to the purchaser. Please note: neither an assignment nor a tax deed gives the holder clear title to the parcel.

It is advisable to consult a competent attorney regarding your contemplated purchase of tax delinquent property.

Additional information can be found in the Code of Alabama 1975, Title 40, Chapter 10, Sale of Land.
