Florida is a tax lien state. It is a very popular investor state due to a combination of good interest rates, short redemption period, and a large population. Interest rates have a maximum of 18% annum, but also pay a minimum return of 5% regardless of the term the lien is held. Over-the-counter liens are sold at 18% interest rate. Tax liens expire after 7 years if not first redeemed or foreclosed. Many counties in Florida now conduct their tax line sales on-line.

Florida also has a tax deed process.
