TAX DEED SURPLUS LISTS

You have the Surplus Database Software and now you need Surplus Lists to put into your database.

First, we want to say that our website and Surplus Database Software was originally created to benefit the people who receive the Tax Deed Surplus records from TaxAuctionSurplus.com, which provides surplus lists only for the counties in Florida.

However, the Surplus Database can be used for Tax Deed Surplus records from any county in any state.


WHAT KIND OF TAX DEED SURPLUS LISTS ARE OUT THERE?

  1. Surplus Lists available on our website

  2. Surplus Lists found when performing your own searches

  3. Surplus Lists you Request that we find and convert for you

  4. Surplus Lists that you purchase from other surplus list providers


EXPLANATION OF EACH


Surplus Lists available on our website

We have a page for every state in the U.S. – We actively seek out Surplus Lists from the Counties in the States that have Tax Deed Auctions. We convert them to the Spreadsheet Format needed to import into the Surplus Database. You can browse and purchase as little or as many as you wish.

We began with Florida and therefore, Florida State Page has the best (and most) surplus records. Starting in May 2019, we are branching out to other states. You do not need to wait, however. We have a way for you to help us fill our website and save a lot of $$ with obtaining surplus lists. (Read #3 below)


Surplus Lists found when performing your own searches

On each State Page, you will find a list of the counties located in that State as well as a set of suggested search terms (the same that we use when seeking surplus lists)

Once you locate and obtain a surplus list, it will not be in a format that will import directly into your Surplus Database. You can use our Video Series “Converting Files” and our Import Spreadsheet Template to make that list importable into your Surplus Database. You can also have us do this for you (See #3 below)


Surplus Lists you Request that we find and convert for you

Once you locate a surplus list, you can use our Surplus List Request Form to have us retrieve the list and convert it for you so it will import into your database.

Please note, we will not convert a list that you send us in a file (Excel, PDF, Doc, etc). We must obtain the list for ourselves. This ensures that you are not sending us a list you purchased elsewhere. Any other list supplier undoubtedly has a stipulation that you cannot share the lists you purchase from them and we adhere to that 100%.

Tax Deed Surplus records are public record. We can get them for you. We do not need you to send us any list you purchased. Just fill out the request form telling us where you found the list in public records and we will obtain and convert.


Lists that you purchase from other surplus list providers

If you already have a membership on a website that supplies Tax Deed Surplus Records, you can use our Video Series “Converting Files” and our Import Spreadsheet Template to make that list importable into your Surplus Database.

Unfortunately we cannot show you how to convert every specific surplus list you receive because every county does something differently. However, our Video Series should cover every file type you may come across.

NEVER SEND US LISTS FROM OTHER SUPPLIERS. It is against their Terms of Subscription.

As of May 2019, we know of only 2 companies that supply surplus records from Tax Deed Auctions.

Tax Auction Surplus provides greatly enhanced records from Florida Counties and on a daily or weekly basis (your choice). We are currently partnered with them and their surplus records spreadsheet will import directly into your Surplus Database with no conversion needed.

Tax Sale Results provides surplus lists from other counties around the U.S. but they are delivered in the format that the county gives them (PDF, Word, Image, etc), so they are not importable into the Surplus Database. If you subscribe with them, please be sure to not send us any of their lists.  With their lists, you will need to use our Video Series “Converting Files” and our Import Spreadsheet Template to make that list importable into your Surplus Database. We cannot do this for you with their records.

However, what we CAN do is go obtain the list ourselves if you do a “List Request”. For example, If you KNOW there is a list out there in Orange County California, simply put a request in for Orange County CA and we will go get it for you directly from the county public records and convert it so you can import it into the Surplus Database Software.
