Getting Started Tax Lien Investing

1 Reply

Does anyone know how I can get some reliable, trustworthy information on getting started in tax lien investing without paying an arm and a leg for it? There is free information out there about tax lien investing, but none that gets into the down-and-dirty, hands-on, nitty-gritty of tax lien investing.

I'm not saying I'm afraid of investing in my education because I'm not. But come on, seriously, I may be a beginner, but I've studied enough to know I don't need to buy some $1500 course just to get my foot in the door of tax lien investing!

I live in Chicago, if that helps. Anyone who can direct me to where I can get this information will be greatly appreciated!

Look up the process on the tax assessor or equivalent's website, and the county/state laws related to it. I can tell you from experience (shaking head in embarrassment) that you can easily find for free what a "guru" would charge you. Then again, that's how I found BP, so I can't complain :-P Tax liens are really all about the law, though, so it's actually a lot easier to find information than some other types of investments. Good luck and happy investing!
