Jacksonville Illinois Tax Lien Certificates
The collection of real estate taxes for properties located in Jacksonville Illinois is a major priority for the Morgan County Illinois Tax Collector. Real estate taxes fund local services such as public education, police protection and medical services.
Delinquent property taxes create a serious cash-flow problem for Morgan County Illinois. If Morgan County Illinois is unable to collect property taxes, they are also unable to fund important government services like police protection, public schooling, and emergency medical services.
Without the tax revenue generated from real estate located in Jacksonville Illinois, Morgan County Illinois would literally go bankrupt.
To solve this cash-flow problem, Morgan County Illinois allows investors to come in and pay off a portion of these delinquent property taxes.
In return, Morgan County Illinois gives investors Illinois tax lien certificates. A tax lien certificate is a document indicating ownership of a real estate tax lien. A tax lien is simply a claim for taxes.
An Illinois tax lien certificate transfers all the rights that come with being the owner of the real estate tax lien from Morgan County Illinois to the investor.
When you buy tax lien certificates in Illinois, you are paying someone else's delinquent property taxes. What's more, Illinois actually gives you the right to receive all of the tax money due - including fees, high interest, and penalties.
To encourage delinquent owners to pay their past-due property taxes, the state of Illinois charges interest on the amount paid to satisfy the delinquent taxes, which is passed directly to the tax lien certificate purchaser.
Everyone is happy, Morgan County Illinois gets their money and you get a real estate secured, high-yielding return on your investment.
For "risk-sensitive" investors Illinois tax lien certificates are the ideal investment. Basically, you are investing your money with Morgan County Illinois and when the Morgan County Illinois Tax Collector collects the past due taxes, they send you a check, returning what you paid to purchase the Illinois tax lien certificate plus penalties, interest, and/or late fees.
Illinois tax lien certificates are safe in several ways. They are safe because the rise and fall of interest rates has no effect on Illinois tax lien certificates. Unlike the stock market, interest rates on Illinois tax lien certificates are mandated by Illinois law.
In addition, Illinois tax lien certificates are secured by real estate. So if you do not receive what you paid to purchase the Illinois tax lien certificate plus interest and/or penalties within the law mandated redemption period, then by law Morgan County Illinois has the legal right to give you the property - debt free with no mortgage!
So in review, there are two ways you can profit; either you will get what you paid to satisfy the delinquent property taxes PLUS a profit rate interest, or Morgan County Illinois has the legal right to give you the property - debt free with no mortgage!
Once you own the property you can do whatever you like; sell it for huge profit checks, rent it for monthly cash-flow, or if you like, even move in with no mortgage payment. The choice is yours, the property belongs to you.
As with all investments, there is always an element of risk. Even if the interest rates are written into Illinois law, mandated by Illinois law, and are regulated by Illinois law, there is a chance of you losing part or all of your investment. You must always try to get the best education and practice safe investing, no matter which investment vehicle you choose.
