Texas State Overview

Texas is a popular state because as they say “everything is bigger in Texas.” Texas offers one of the highest, if not the highest, interest rates available of all 50 states. After the first year you may make 50% penalty interest on your investment. Many of the counties in Texas use law firms to handle their back taxes and sale of redeemable tax deeds.
