Tax Sale Investing Definitions

You will want to become familiar with the language used by the county/state for its tax sale process, as there can be differences. For example, tax lien certificates that are left over from a sale and can be purchased "over-the-counter" are known as certificates of purchase in Arizona, and county-held tax lien certificates in several other states. Tax deed properties available over-the-counter are, for example, known as lands available for taxes (LAFT) in Florida, and tax title properties in Washington. 

Because every state handles its tax sales differently, you need to understand the rules for the state in which you will be making a bid or purchase. Even within a state counties (or municipalities) have some leeway to make their own requirements for tax sales, so you also need to become familiar with local rules and regulations prior to going to an auction or making a purchase.
