The bill is assessed based on property values and can range from several hundred dollars to several thousand dollars.

When the property owner pays retribution to the area, investors receive their initial investment plus interest. The permitted interest varies by regions but runs between 5-18 percent per year on average.

Liens tax generally has priority over all other property debt, including mortgages.
Before making a thorough investment researching the property to confirm it can be marketed and to avoid problem. Make sure the property value is far exceeded the county tax bill. A general rule of thumb is a property value at least ten times the amount owed.
