Low interest rates can mean high interest from readers. Dealing with unpaid taxes? Looking for investment opportunities? With home foreclosures at an all-time high and the erratic stock market damaging 401(k) accounts, people are looking for innovative ways to invest their money and improve their financial situation through different investment vehicles. Moskowitz explains what tax lien certificates are (liens against property for unpaid taxes), why they are safe investments (certain states insure them), and how they fit into an overall financial plan. This new edition includes updates to the laws and procedures of states and counties that offer tax lien certificates.
