Tax liens are sold to the highest bidder offering the most premium over the amount of the lien. Basically, if you are willing to pay more, you will win the tax lien. Most states do not allow interest to accrue on this "overage," but only the original lien amount. In most cases, this amount of money is not reimbursed, in fact, it is money that is pocketed by the county and is not paid bakc when the taxes are redeemed.
