Arkansas does not sell tax lien certificates. Arkansas sells tax deeds through the Commissioner of State Lands. The State Land Commissioner will offer tax deeds every quarter (in other words roughly four times per year). Typically the opening bid is required to equal the assessed or appraised value of the parcel of land. This means that it can be harder to get discount price on property in Arkansas. It should be noted that lower bids on parcels have been accepted by the Land Commissioner's Office.
Arkansas tax deeds will go to a competitive auction in which the price of the parcel will be bid up. Currently the statutory scheme allows for a 30 day right of redemption period whereby the delinquent taxpayer can pay price paid at auction to re-claim title to the parcel. Investors bid in Arkansas with the intention of property ownership.
NOTE: In all tax deed states research is very important. This is because the possibility of land ownership is very high. You should begin reading the state statutes relating to property taxes and delinquent tax collection practices. It is very important to be fully aware of which liens will survive the sale and foreclosure of the deed. The new owner of the parcel will be responsible for any surviving liens and claims attached to the property.
