Sale of land for delinquent taxes. Extends from 36 to 60 months the time period for which a local tax official may suspend an action for the sale of tax delinquent property, which under current law is authorized if the owner enters into an agreement with the official to pay delinquent taxes in installments. The bill also authorizes an official to suspend an action if a person who is not a party to the action gives notice asserting ownership rights, by virtue of testate or intestate succession, in the property subject to the action. If a court determines such person has ownership rights in the property, such person may enter into an installment plan similar to what is authorized under current law. The bill provides that a final court order confirming sale of tax delinquent property shall not be entered sooner than the later of (i) 90 days after the official gives notice of the action or (ii) 90 days after the official receives notice from a person who is not a party to the action asserting ownership rights.
