With $14 billion in unpaid property taxes each year in America, tax lien investing is getting more and more attention from investors these days as a lucrative, low risk alternative to the volatility of only investing in the stock market. When property taxes are not paid, counties are not able to fund services such as school teachers, police, and firemen and this in turn disrupts life as we know it. The solution? States have been assigning and transferring these unpaid taxes as liens to private investors which gives local governments an immediate infusion of cash with low risk. Join us for this week's podcast as our guest, Melanie Finnegan, gives us an overview of what tax liens are as well as her investment strategies and things to watch out for when investing in tax liens.
