Rate Of Return:

Indiana’s interest rate of return ranges from 10% -15% depending upon when it is redeemed. This rate is a penalty which is a flat rate and does not accrue with time. A rate of 10% applies to properties redeemed within 6 months of the sale and 15% for properties redeemed after 6 months, but no more than 1 year.

Bidding Type:

Indiana uses the “Premium Bid” method. The counties starting bid will include all back taxes, penalties, interest, and administrative cost. The lien is bid up in price with the investor bidding the highest amount receiving the tax lien certificate. The difference between the minimum bid, and the successful bid price is known as the tax Sale Overbid. This money goes into a tax sale surplus fund and may be claimed by either the former property owner who lost ownership rights or the tax lien certificate holder if the property redeems.
