What is the redemption period?
The redemption period is 3 years effective 2013. Delinquent taxes prior to 2013 have a redemption period based on statute changes in 2013 legislative session. Contact the county treasurer's office to verify the redemption period. At any time during the redemption period the owner may pay the delinquent taxes to prevent forfeiture. Before the period of redemption expires, the homeowner receives a "Notice of Expiration of Redemption" and the county auditor is required to mail one last warning to the homeowner. A property forfeits to the state when the redemption period expires or 60 days after the final warning is sent, whichever is later. Contact the treasurers' office for more information.
