Comments:
Louisiana is a tax lien state. The state is unique in that lien holder can immediately apply for a tax deed, but the courts will likely make the investor wait for the 3 year period. The interest rate is actually 12% plus a 5% penalty for the first year, and 12% thereafter. Over-the-counter liens are not issued. Ownership bid down can lead to situations where the lien holder is granted partnership with the original property owner after foreclosure. Counties are called Parishes in Louisiana.
