Tax Lien Information

Alamosa County holds a tax lien auction each year (typically in November), conducted by the Alamosa County Treasurer. Any parcels that have delinquent taxes by the time of the tax lien auction could have lines sold on them.

  • When you have a lien assigned to you, it does not give you ownership or legal rights to the property in any way outside of the tax lien itself.
  • You will earn interest during the time you hold the lien that must be paid back upon redemption by the owner.
  • You must hold the lien until it is redeemed by the owner or have a treasurer’s deed granted to you after the 3-year redemption period is up.
  • If you obtain a Treasurer’s Deed on the parcel, the recorded document will show new ownership of the property.
  • As a tax lien holder, you will receive a tax notice after August 1st of each year.
    • It is in your best interest to continue to endorse (pay) sub-taxes if the owner has not paid them to protect your interest in the parcel.

Should you be interested in any of these liens assigned to you, please contact our office at (719) 589-3626 and we can assist you in the process.

  • All tax lien assignments are final and non-refundable.
  • In Colorado, it is the buyer’s responsibility to know what they are purchasing (CAVEAT EMPTOR or “Buyer Beware”).
  • Our office can assist you with answering questions about the process, but we are unable to provide legal advice.
