For properties facing Tax Foreclosure in 2017:
As part of the foreclosure judgment, you can redeem your property by paying the 2014 and prior year taxes by March 31, 2017.
The first step is to obtain the balance of your 2014 and prior year property taxes. You can find that balance using the property owner's name and/or the property address.
