DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL


Delinquent property tax sales. Requires, for tax deeds executed for real property sold at a tax sale, that the county auditor submit the tax deed directly to the county recorder for recording and charge the tax sale purchaser the appropriate recording fee. Requires that the certificate of sale that is issued to a tax sale purchaser must include a statement that taxes, special assessments, interest, penalties, and fees accruing on the property after the date of the tax sale are liens against the property. Adds notice requirements concerning the accruing of these liens on tax sale property after the date of the tax sale. Specifies that to obtain a tax deed, the petitioner must pay the taxes, special assessments, interest, penalties, and fees that accrue after the date of the tax sale. Requires, instead of permits, a person buying property at a tax sale to petition for a tax deed within six months after the redemption period ends. Specifies that a person who fails to timely file the petition for a tax deed is not entitled to the return of the purchase price or any part of the purchase price. (Current law specifies that the purchaser's lien terminates.)
