          Mission Statement
CPS Tax Lien Income Fund I LLC (CTLIF)
• To generate above average rates of returns by
  investing in property tax liens throughout the
  country.
• Goal is to earn high single digit to low double
  digit returns.
• Considered by many to be lower risk
  investment
     What is a Property Tax Lien?
When a real property owner fails to pay
 property taxes the local taxing authority or
 county will issue a tax lien on that property.
 The tax lien will then be sold at auction to
 generate the tax revenue for the local
 government. If the lien is not satisfied within
 a statutory period, the owner usually has the
 right to foreclose the lien. Typically, the low
 interest rate bidder wins the Tax Lien.
 What does a property Tax Lien look like?

• CTLIF will be investing in tax liens (certificates)
  in Florida and potentially in other states
• It is only practical to invest in tax lien auctions
  that are web based (internet)
• All records are therefore web based
• Tax lien is nothing more than an “electronic
  record”
  Benefits in Tax Lien Investing
• Security-tax liens are secured by real property
• First lien-against real property-first priority
  over mortgages, HOA fees, mechanics liens
  (exception certain government liens).
• High equity position- lien represents small
  fraction of the assessed value-exception if
  there an numerous other outstanding tax liens
           Benefits……continued
• Property tax lien amount due plus accrued
  interest is computed and collected by county
• Property tax lien holder can petition for a tax
  deed if the tax is unpaid
• Fixed principal-the principal and interest rate
  is fixed
• Yield is attractive compared to alternative
  fixed income investments
      Which states to invest in?
• Florida-initial concentration, excellent for
  investors; over 30 counties use web sites,
  auctions start at 18%, lowest rate bidder wins
• Arizona, California, Illinois, and Texas and
  other states offer attractive returns and web
  based auctions
            Methodology
• CTLIF establishes guidelines-minimum and
  maximum amounts to minimize risk
• Dollar range generally; $500 to $30,000
• Assessed values generally > 10 times lien
  certificate value
• Minimize properties with prior tax liens
  outstanding
             Estimated Losses
• CTLIF estimates annual losses to be in the
  range of .50% to 1.00% of the portfolio
• Losses occur from properties CTLIF chooses
  not to foreclose
• Examples of possible losses-
  – Gas station with environmental issues-
    contaminated soil
  – Property with major decline in value-hurricane or
    major decline in value (Pensacola beach)
            Estimated Losses
Foreclosures:
– Property must be investigated before petition
– All prior tax liens must be paid by petitioner
– Petition court for tax deed sale
– Place property up for sale
Outcome:
  Petitioner obtains title if no other bidders show
  Sell the property immediately
  Small gain or loss on your foreclosure
  Total loss if you choose not to foreclose/petition
   Competition from other investors
           is the major risk
• CTLIF considers institutional investors and
  investment companies the biggest potential
  threat who are willing to accept lower returns.
• Institutional investors may dominate auctions
  and bid interest rates to low levels thus
  adversely impacting our ability to purchase
  high yield tax liens
• Competition increased in 2010 from hedge
  funds and 12 banks (which used TARP $)
                       Recent Competition
Sample of 25 county auctions in Florida

            Average interest rate per lien
            2008       12.04%
            2009       14.11%
            2010        9.03%

       Other Risks Affecting Yield
Quick redemption of tax lien lowers yield-

  If you buy a 12% tax lien that is outstanding for only
  6 months your real return is 6%

  Reinvestment of idle cash is a major hurdle for CTLIF!
            Other Risks-
 Quick Redemptions Produce Idle Cash
Historical repayment of tax certificates
  First year
  First six months          31%
  Second six months         18%          49%
  Second year
  Even throughout the year               49%
  Total redemptions end of 2nd year 98%

Repayment history per Smith’s prior experience. Past redemptions are not a guarantee of future results.
          Investing Idle Cash
Secondary auctions are held by Florida counties
for Tax Liens unsold from the May/June auctions.
These are called “County Held Certificates,”
and made available for purchase at 18%. These
auctions begin in mid June and are available
throughout the year.
   The quality and quantity of secondary auctions may
   not be sufficient to keep our funds fully invested
            Investing Idle Cash
Out of state (non Florida) auctions are held
  throughout the year
CTLIF will be investing in certificates outside the
  state of Florida for diversification and to keep
  funds fully invested
