Hawaii is classified as a Redeemable Tax Deed state and does not offer any Tax Lien Certificates or OTC sales. Sales dates vary and are set by the local tax collector.

Auction Process / Redemption:

The county tax collector or treasurer oversees the tax sales. Tax deeds sold in Hawaii are purchased with a one year right of redemption, making them Redeemable Tax Deeds. Deeds must be recorded with the county within 60 days of the sale to maintain a 12 month redemption period. If the deed is recorded later than 60 days from the auction date the redemption period is one year from the recorded date. A penalty rate of 12% is applied to the redemption of all tax deeds. If the property owner does not pay all delinquent taxes, interest, penalties, and fees by the end of the 12 month period the tax collector or tax collector's assistant shall execute the process of terminating redemption rights.
