Market Research

The National Tax Lien Association reported a staggering $22 billion in property taxes went unpaid last year in America. Local governments increasingly rely on tax sales to help cover this shortfall.

Brad Westover, NTLA’s Executive Director, commented, "With $22 billion dollars we could build 275 high schools, pay 349,206 teacher salaries, construct 3,144 police-fire stations, or grant 4.4 million student scholarships. We must tirelessly focus on providing great education for our children and safe cities for all… both of which are funded almost entirely through property taxes!”
