.If I don't pay my taxes, will I really lose my house and property?
Yes. Property owners who had delinquent taxes under the old law could also lose their property, but they had more time to pay and more "second chances." Under the new law, if your taxes are delinquent for two years, that's it. You've lost the property.

For example: taxes that are billed by your city, township, or village treasurer in 2009 and yet unpaid on the last day of February 2010, will be turned over to the County Treasurer as delinquent on March 1, 2010.
What happens after my property is in forfeiture?
