The state of Virginia does not sell tax lien certificates when property taxes are past due. Instead, it auctions the full ownership — or deed — to properties that have unpaid taxes for two or more years. Tax auctions are held annually in most Virginia counties, but Richmond, Virginia, holds public tax auctions three to four times each year. Properties auctioned in Richmond are sold free of all liens and encumbrances.
