The two most populous areas in New York are Kings (2,504,000+) and Queens (2,230,000+) County.
New York is primarily classified as a Tax Deed state. Only select counties, such as New York and Nassau, conduct Tax Lien Certificate sales. However, all counties, and some municipalities, do participate in Tax Deed sales. Sales are held throughout the year at a time set by the individual county's preferences. OTC sales are also available as county held land.
