New York Tax Deed Sales
There are 62 counties in the state of New York. Tax collections are handled at the county level and by the cities and municipalities that have charters and provisions for the collection of taxes. Tax lien certificates can be sold, as is the case in New York City and Nassau County. Both counties and cities authorize public auctions. Sales are usually conducted in April or August, but the dates can vary. Many counties in New York retain a private firm to handle tax sales and auctions.
Some municipalities (e.g., New York City) do not offer liens for sale to individual investors or the general public. Check the rules in your area. Also, sales can be crowded.
