Why is Montgomery County selling tax liens?

Montgomery County property owners have an obligation to pay Property Taxes. Property Taxes are an important funding source for local schools and governments. 

Property owners who do not pay their taxes pass this responsibility to those who do pay their taxes. The Tax Lien Sale provides immediate funding of past due tax dollars to the agencies like schools and local governments that rely on property tax funds to operate.
