Endorsement of Tax Liens
Endorsement of Subsequent Tax Liens
What is Endorsement?
Endorsement provides the current certificate holder with the option of endorsing the current year's delinquent tax onto the original tax sale certificate. Subsequent payment of the delinquent tax will earn the same rate of interest as the original certificate.
Colorado Revised Statutes, 39-11-119, provide a holder of a certificate of
purchase may pay subsequent taxes on the property of which the buyer holds an unredeemed certificate, and this payment will be endorsed onto
both the original certificate and the tax lien sale record in the Treasurer's office.
When am I able to Endorse?
The Phillips County Treasurer will accept subsequent payments of taxes beginning in August. Endorsement letters are mailed to all certificate holders.
What do I need to do?
After receiving your endorsement list, please notify us as to which certificates you wish to endorse. Personal checks are acceptable.
When Can I Apply For A Treasurer's Deed?
Application may be started after August 1st of the third year after the Tax sale in which the tax lien was purchased (for instance, a tax lien purchased in December, 2009, for the 2008 taxes will allow a deed application in August of 2012).
