You mean "property renters". Try not paying your semi-annual property rent to the REAL owners, and see what happens...
Here in Texas some of the democrat controlled counties have a new trick for taking someone’s property to sell to someone else that wants the property.
File a suit claiming delinquent taxes are due on the property even though the taxes have been paid.
When the owner presents evidence in the form of receipts showing the taxes have been paid they will agree to dismiss the suit.
With the owner believing the suit is dismissed the county will then get a judgment against the previous owner of the property and an en rem (SP?) judgment against the property.
Since the suit against the owner is dismissed the owner is never notified of any kind of judgment.
Without knowledge of any kind of judgment the owner has no reason to file any kind of appeal of the judgment.
Since the owner hasn’t appealed the judgment, the court will then seize the property.
The owner is then left with the option of paying the county the money they claim is owed, or the owner looses the property.
Anybody believe this is far fetched, they did it to me in Hardin County, TX.
From what I got out of an attorney the same thing has been happening in a number of counties.
I believe this is what was behind the attempt to take the taxing authority away from each individual school district.
