Delinquent real property taxes.  Modifies procedures governing delinquent real property taxes by (i) requiring the commissioner of the revenue to correct land records that incorrectly report property as having delinquent taxes; (ii) requiring the owner of real property to pay all delinquent town taxes, in addition to paying delinquent county taxes under current law, in order to stop a judicial sale of the property; and (iii) conditioning a court's referral of a judicial sale to a commissioner of chancery for a ruling prior to sale, upon a proper objection having been made by an interested party.
