Most states in the U.S. offer tax deeds in which the redemption period ends usually in the day prior to the actual sale. However, there are a few exceptions to be noted like for example the state of Texas. Texas offers redeemable tax deeds.
Remember that Texas is one of the tax deed states. This simply means it does not offer tax liens. Each county in this state wherein a tax delinquent property is located, would be put up in an auction and sold off after two years of delinquency. This happens in many counties around Texas and as often as once a month. Moreover, during this time, a stable stream of tax delinquent properties is being sold to the highest bidders.
