(1) At a tax certificate sale, the tax collector shall strike to the county each certificate
on property for which taxes have been deferred. Certificates issued pursuant to this section are exempt from the public sale of
tax certificates held pursuant to s. 197.432 or s. 197.4725.
(2) The certificates so held by the county shall bear interest at a rate equal to
the semiannually compounded rate of 0.5 percent plus the average yield to maturity
of the long-term fixed-income portion of the Florida Retirement System investments
as of the end of the quarter preceding the date of the sale of the deferred payment
tax certificates. However, the interest rate may not exceed 7 percent.
