Each week I see infomercials on buying tax liens as a way to own real estate. Wanting to know more, but not wanting the hassle of infomercial upsell pressure, I got this book. I think it offers a good overview of how tax liens work. It also shows that you're not too likely to buy a tax lien for $200 and own a home. It shows how states vary (some you just have a lien, some you have the home), and how tax sales work.
Because real estate and taxes involve big financial implications, I'd still do more research and even find a mentor who is successful in tax lien purchases before getting involved. But for an overall view, this is a good resource.
