Tax Deed Assignment Process

Tax Liens

A tax lien is a lien imposed by law upon a property to secure the payment of taxes, for delinquent taxes owed on real property or personal property, or as a result of a failure to pay income taxes or other taxes. For more information, download our Helpful Definitions document (PDF) or a brief description of the assignment process for the tax lien sale purchase (PDF).

Delinquent Taxes

Delinquent tax refers to a tax that remains unpaid after the payment due date. A tax lien sale certificate is imposed by law for delinquent taxes owed on real property or personal property. Assigned by the County Treasurer to any person who fails to pay the County the amount of delinquent taxes including penalties, interest, and costs, accruing from the date of delinquency after being provided proof of mail notice, a tax lien sale certificate lists Anaconda-Deer Lodge County as the purchaser.
