In Rem Foreclosure has begun on property with unpaid 2017 taxes. The petition has been filed with the Clerk of Courts on 7/28/21. If 2017 taxes are not redeemed (paid) by November 18, 2021, Price County will take ownership of the property following a 30 day answer period, court date set for 12/22/21, with land auction to take place in early spring 2022.
Unpaid 2018 Taxeswere published in the Price County Review April 2021. Title Searches have begun on December 21, 2021. The additional title search fee ($175) will be added to the parcels with unpaid 2018 taxes.
Tax Certificate is assigned to current year taxes September 1st of each year (example - 2020 unpaid taxes have tax certificate issued Sept 1, 2021). This starts the countdown for taking Tax Deed/In Rem Foreclosure. Once real estate taxes are unpaid for 2 years from the date Tax Certificate is issued, the Tax deed/In Rem Foreclosure process begins with a publication in the local newspaper in April (for delinquent 2019 taxes this will be April 2022), Title searches are then started 6 months after the publication. Fees incurred from the publication, title searches, certified mailings etc... are added to the unpaid taxes. Above are links to properties currently in the In Rem Foreclosure/Tax Deed process.
