    (1) Parcels may be advertised but not auctioned because of pending litigation such as bankruptcy.
    (2) Maximum interest rate is 16%.

  • Sold liens includes liens sold at the tax sale, subtax and assignment liens.
    Outstanding liens have not yet been redeemed.
    Redeemed liens have been paid off or foreclosed.

  • These liens were sold to CP (Certificate of Purchase) buyers and are still being held. They include liens sold at the tax sale, as well as subtax and assignment liens.

  • These liens were sold to CP buyers and have been paid off or foreclosed, so the lien has been cleared. Includes liens from tax sale, subtax and assignment.

  • State Liens have been auctioned at each tax sale, but did not sell. Redeemed liens have been paid off by their owners. Assignable liens are available for purchase by assignment at 16% interest rate. The state can foreclose on State liens held at least 7 years.

Seniors needing additional property tax relief and Arizonans not required to file individual income taxes may be able to take advantage of state tax credits


Individual income tax filing season in the state provides potential benefits for Arizonans whose income level is below minimum threshold limits and not required to file an individual income tax return or are seniors who own a residence.

Both may still be eligible for state tax benefits by submitting two forms available through the Arizona Department of Revenue - Form 140ET Credit for Increased Excise Taxes or Form 140PTC Property Tax Refund Claim.

  • Form 140PTC is used by qualified individuals to claim a refundable income tax credit for taxes paid on property located in Arizona that is either owned by or rented by the taxpayer. Form 140PTC provides a tax credit of up to $502. To claim a property tax credit, you must file your claim or extension request by April 15, 2020. You cannot claim this credit on an amended return if you file it after the due date.
  • Form 140ET is used by individuals not required to file an Arizona individual income tax return but qualify to claim the refundable excise tax credit. The maximum credit available for the increased excise tax (Form 140ET) is $100 per household. An excise tax is a tax levied on certain goods by the state or federal government such as fuel, cigarettes, cellphones and alcoholic beverages.

Individuals not filing an income tax return and claiming both credits need only to complete Form 140PTC. However, individuals not submitting a tax return and not claiming the property tax credit must complete Form 140ET to claim the credit for increased excise taxes.

To determine eligibility for either Form 140PTC or Form 140ET, see form instructions at www.azdor.gov/Forms/Individual.

CP Expirations Legal Changes


There has been a change in CP Liens that is applicable to lienholders. Beginning September, 2019, SB1236 will include a provision that modifies the language in §A.R.S. 42-18127 Section A.

The original certificate of purchase, in addition to all subsequent taxes (sub taxes) will expire if an action to foreclose has not commenced within ten years after the last day of the month in which the original certificate was acquired.

Pursuant to this legislation, tax liens eligible for expiration will include the original certificate and all related sub taxes in the expiration process. Those liens with deadlines that are already in effect will not be affected however it will affect all future sub taxing liens so that the deadline will expire within a ten year period after the last day of the month that it was acquired and time limits cannot be extended to the original purchase.

You should consult your attorney for further advice.
