What is the difference between a tax lien and tax delinquent on a property?
A lien clouds the title so it can not be sold. Also the tax lien can be sold by the government to an investor, who could then collect the lien plus interest or foreclose on the property.
If you do not pay property tax on a property. you are tax deliquent on the property.
The city or county then put a lien on you deliquent tax and is called tax lien.
