You'll need to look at the tax assessor's website for your county for information on local tax auctions. Typically they have tax sales once or twice a year in CA.

Be aware that the lists at first may appear massive, but the majority of the tax liens are redeemed (paid off) before the auction, and thus many properties will never go to auction. Also be sure that you know what you're bidding on... not all liens will be removed (meaning you may have a liability you didn't count on) and not all properties will be what they appear to be from the information provided with the auction materials.

CA also reserves the right to "take back" an auction property if the previous owner can prove that there either was an error, or that they didn't receive sufficient notice before the auction. Be sure you know all the rules before you purchase a home at a tax auction, and before you sell a home that you purchased at a tax auction.
