Any person claiming an interest in any parcel of land bid in by the state at a tax sale may redeem the same within the time and in the manner in this chapter provided.

281.02 AMOUNT PAYABLE.

Any person redeeming any parcel of land shall pay into the county treasury, the amount for which the same was bid in, the amount of all subsequent delinquent taxes, penalties, costs, and interest thereon at the rate provided in section 279.03.

281.03 AUDITOR'S CERTIFICATE.

The county auditor shall certify to the amount due on such redemption, and, on payment of the same to the county treasurer, shall make duplicate receipts for the certified amount, describing the property redeemed, one of which shall be filed with the auditor. Such receipts shall be governed by the provisions of this chapter regulating the payment of current taxes and such payment shall have the effect to annul the sale. If the amount certified by the auditor and received in payment for redemption be less than that required by law, it shall not invalidate the redemption. On redemption being made, the auditor shall record the parcel as redeemed.

281.04 REDEMPTION BY PERSONS UNDER DISABILITY.

Minors, persons with a mental illness, persons with a developmental disability, or persons in captivity or in any country with which the United States is at war, having an estate in or lien on lands sold for taxes, of record in the office of the county recorder of the county where the lands lie, before the expiration of three years from the date of such sale, may redeem the same within one year after such disability shall cease; but in such case the right to redeem must be established in a suit for that purpose brought against the party holding the title under the sale.

281.05 REDEMPTION WHEN OWNER DIES.

When the owner of lands sold for taxes dies after such sale and before the expiration of the period of redemption, a personal representative or any person interested in the owner's estate as heir, devisee, legatee, or creditor, may redeem from such sale during the period for redemption. If such redemption be made by a personal representative, the representative shall at the time thereof produce to the county auditor letters issued pursuant to chapter 524. If made by any other person, the person shall make and file with the county auditor an affidavit stating under what right or claim such redemption is made. The auditor shall make and deliver to the person making such redemption a certificate containing the name of the person redeeming, a statement of the claim or right upon which such redemption was made, the amount paid to redeem, a description of the lands redeemed, the date of the sale, and the year in which the taxes for which such sale was made were levied, which certificate shall have the effect to annul such sale, and may be recorded as other deeds of real estate, and with the like effect. If such redemption be made by a creditor, the amount paid to effect such redemption, with interest thereon at the rate provided in section 279.03, shall constitute a valid claim against the estate of the deceased.

The county auditor shall give notice as provided by section 281.10, and not less than 10, nor more than 20, days after such notice, shall determine the portion of the tax on the whole tract to be charged to such lesser tract, and any person may pay such portion to the county treasurer, and upon payment to the county treasurer of the amount so charged to such lesser tract the treasurer shall give a receipt for the amount so paid and specify the tract so paid on, and enter on the tax list the name of the person who paid such taxes and the tract on which the tax was so paid, and report to the auditor the payment of such taxes on such tract. Thereupon the tract shall be exempt from proceedings to enforce the collection of the tax against the remaining tract upon which such tax has not been paid and the collection of such tax upon the remaining tract upon which the taxes have not been paid shall be proceeded within the same manner as to such remaining tract as though it were listed as a separate description.

Such just proportion and interest shall be a lien upon the land of such other person so sold and, after expiration of the time allowed for redemption, may be collected out of such land by sale thereof, by foreclosure or other proper action or proceeding; provided, that the same shall not be a lien until the person paying the same, or the person's agent or attorney, shall make and file for record with the county recorder of the county where the land lies an affidavit, stating the amount paid for which such other person is liable, and that the payer claims a lien therefor.

As soon as practicable after the posting of the notice prescribed in subdivision 2, the county auditor shall cause to be published for two successive weeks in the official newspaper of the county, the notice prescribed by subdivision 2.

Subd. 4.Proof of publication.

An affidavit establishing proof of publication of the notice affidavit, as provided by law, must be filed in the office of the county auditor. A single published notice may include parcels of land bid in at different tax judgment sales, but included parcels must have a common year for expiration of redemption.

Subd. 5.Mailing of notice.

Forthwith after the commencement of such publication, the county auditor shall cause the notice of expiration of redemption to be mailed by certified mail, return receipt requested, to all real property taxpayers and fee owners and in addition to those parties who have filed their addresses pursuant to section 276.041. Proof of such mailing shall be made by the certificate of the auditor filed in the auditor's office. Failure to receive the notice shall not operate to postpone or excuse any default.

Subd. 5a.Definition.

In this section, "occupied parcel" means a parcel containing a structure subject to property taxation.

Subd. 6.Service of notice.

Immediately after the commencement of publication or mailing the county auditor shall deliver to the sheriff of the county or any other person not less than 18 years of age a sufficient number of copies of the notice of expiration of redemption for service on the persons in possession of all parcels of such land actually occupied, and documentation if the certified mail notice was returned as undeliverable or the notice was not mailed to the address associated with the property. Within 30 days after receipt of the notice, the sheriff or other person serving the notice shall investigate as necessary to ascertain whether or not the parcels covered by the notice are actually occupied parcels, and shall serve a copy of the notice of expiration of redemption upon the person in possession of each parcel found to be an occupied parcel, in the manner prescribed for serving summons in a civil action. If the sheriff or another person serving the notice has made at least two attempts to serve the notice of expiration of redemption, one between the weekday hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. and the other on a different day and different time period, the sheriff or another person serving the notice may accomplish this service by posting a copy of the notice of expiration of redemption on a conspicuous location on the parcel. The sheriff or other person serving the notice shall make prompt return to the auditor as to all notices so served and as to all parcels found vacant and unoccupied and parcels served by posting. The return must be made on a copy of the notice and is prima facie evidence of the facts stated in it.

If the notice is served by the sheriff, the sheriff shall receive from the county, in addition to other compensation prescribed by law, fees and mileage for service on persons in possession as prescribed by law for such service in other cases, and shall also receive compensation for making investigation and return as to vacant and unoccupied lands as the county board may fix, subject to appeal to the district court as in case of other claims against the county. As to either service upon persons in possession or return as to vacant lands, the sheriff shall charge mileage only for one trip if the occupants of more than two tracts are served simultaneously, and in such case mileage must be prorated and charged equitably against all such owners.

Subd. 7.Expiration of time for redemption.

The time for redemption of any parcel of land as to which notice of expiration has been given, as provided in subdivisions 2, 3, 5, and 6, shall expire 60 days after the giving of such notice and the filing of proof thereof in the office of the county auditor.

Subd. 8.Cost.

The cost of giving notice, as provided by subdivisions 2, 3, 5, and 6, shall be paid by the county. The county may recover costs incurred for posting, publishing, mailing, and serving the notice from the owner of the parcel that is the subject of the notice.

Subd. 9.Certificate.

After the time for redemption of any lands shall have expired after notice given, as provided in subdivisions 2, 3, 5, and 6, the county auditor shall execute a certificate describing the lands, specifying the tax judgment sale at which the same were bid in for the state, and stating that the time for redemption thereof has expired after notice given as provided by law and that absolute title thereto has vested in the state of Minnesota. Such certificate shall be recorded in the office of the county recorder, except that in case of registered land such certificate shall be recorded in the office of the registrar of titles. Such certificate and the record thereof shall be prima facie evidence of the facts therein stated, but failure to execute or record or file such certificate shall not affect the validity of any proceedings hereunder respecting such lands or the title of the state thereto.

281.24 LAND SUBJECT TO ASSIGNMENT.

Every parcel of land heretofore bid in for the state at any tax judgment sale and not heretofore sold or assigned to an actual purchaser, and every parcel of land hereafter bid in for the state at any such sale, unless redeemed, shall remain subject to assignment to an actual purchaser in the manner provided by law until the date of forfeiture of such parcel, but no longer. In case any such parcel shall be so assigned after notice of expiration of redemption has been given by the county auditor, such notice shall be ineffectual as to such parcel, and the time for redemption of such parcel shall continue until terminated after notice given as in other cases of parcels assigned to actual purchasers. In the case of those tracts entitled to the benefit of one-year's notice of expiration of the period of redemption such one-year period shall not be shortened by reason of any sale or assignment of the tax judgment or certificate covering such tract.

281.25 TITLES TO BE HELD IN TRUST BY THE STATE.

Except as otherwise provided by law, the title to every parcel of land acquired by the state shall be held by the state in trust for the respective taxing districts interested in the taxes, assessments, penalties, interest, and costs accrued against such parcel at the time of such acquisition in proportion to the respective interests of such taxing districts therein.

281.273 EXPIRATION OF TIME OF REDEMPTION ON LANDS OWNED BY PERSONS IN MILITARY SERVICE.

When a county sheriff or other person serves notice of expiration of the time for redemption of any parcel of real property from delinquent taxes upon any occupant of the real property, the sheriff or other person shall inquire of the occupant and otherwise as the sheriff or other person may deem proper whether the real property was owned and occupied for dwelling, professional, business or agricultural purposes by a person in the military service of the United States as defined in the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act, as amended, or the person's dependents at the commencement of the period of military service. On finding that the real property is so owned, the sheriff or other person shall make a certificate to the county auditor, setting forth the description of the property, the name of the owner, the particulars of the owner's military service so far as ascertained or claimed, and the names and addresses of the persons of whom the sheriff or other person made inquiry. The certificate shall be filed with the county auditor and shall be prima facie evidence of the facts stated. If the real property described in the certificate becomes forfeited to the state, it shall be withheld from sale or conveyance as tax-forfeited property in accordance with and subject to the provisions of the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act, as amended, except that the requirement in United States Code, title 50, section 560, that the property be occupied by the dependent or employee of the person in military service does not apply. The period of withholding from sale or conveyance shall be no longer than is required by that act. If upon further investigation the sheriff or other person finds at any time that the certificate is erroneous in any particular, the sheriff or other person shall file a supplemental certificate referring to the matter in error and stating the facts as found. The supplemental certificate shall be prima facie evidence of the facts stated, and shall supersede any prior certificate so far as in conflict therewith. If it appears from the supplemental certificate that the owner of the real property affected is not entitled to have the same withheld from sale under the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act, as amended, the property shall not be withheld from sale further under this section.

281.274 MAY BE WITHHELD FROM SALE, PAYMENTS.

Subdivision 1.Payment by person in military service.

The owner of any real property withheld from sale pursuant to section 281.273, or the owner's agent or representative, may at any time while entitled to have the same withheld from sale under the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act, as amended, pay the aggregate amount of all delinquent taxes and assessments as provided in subdivision 2 in one payment without penalties, interest or costs or in ten installments as provided in subdivision 3. Upon full payment of such aggregate amount of all delinquent taxes and assessments, the forfeiture shall be canceled and of no effect, and the county auditor shall certify to the commissioner of revenue the following facts: The description of the real property, the name of the owner thereof, the particulars of the owner's military service for the United States, so far as known, the payment in full of the aggregate amount of such taxes and assessments, and the date thereof. Upon receipt of such certificate from the county auditor, such owner shall receive a quitclaim deed to such property from the state executed by the commissioner of revenue.

Subd. 2.Payment amount.

The aggregate amount to be paid as provided in subdivision 1 shall mean the sum of the taxes and assessments without penalties, interest or costs accrued against such real property and unpaid, including taxes and assessments levied and assessed as omitted taxes as hereinafter provided. When an application is made to pay taxes and assessments as provided in subdivision 1, the auditor shall levy and assess against such real property as omitted taxes, upon the basis of the net tax capacity in effect in the last year in which taxes included in such notice of expiration of the time for redemption were levied and assessed, all taxes which would have been assessed in each year after the last year so included in such notice and all assessments which would have been levied and assessed against such real property after the last year included in such notice.

Subd. 3.Time of payment.

When any person accorded the right in subdivision 2 to pay taxes makes application to the county auditor to pay the aggregate amount of such taxes and assessments in installments, the person shall pay one-tenth of the aggregate amount of such taxes and assessments at the time of application and the balance thereof in nine equal annual installments, with the privilege of paying the unpaid balance in full at any time, with interest at the rate of four percent on the balance remaining unpaid each year, the first installment of principal and interest to become due and payable on October 31 of the year following the year in which the application was made, the remaining installments to become due and payable on October 31 of each year thereafter until fully paid. Failure to make any payment herein required within 60 days from the date on which payment was due shall constitute default and upon such default the right, title, and interest of such person in the military service or the person's heirs, representatives or assigns in such real property shall terminate without the doing by the state of any act or thing.

281.275 COUNTY BOARD MAY PETITION DISTRICT COURT.

If at any time the county board is of the opinion that the ability of the person in the military service to pay the taxes or assessments upon such real property is not materially affected by reason of such service, it may petition the district court of the county wherein such real property is situated for an order authorizing the property to be sold or otherwise disposed of under the laws relating to tax-forfeited property in conformity with the provisions of the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act, as amended, 50 United States Code Annotated App., section 560 (2). Upon the filing of such petition the court shall fix a time and place for hearing thereon, and notice of the time and place of such hearing and the relief requested thereat shall be served upon the owner of such real property in like manner as a summons is served in a civil action. If there be no appearance by such person who is in the military service of the United States, the court shall proceed in the manner prescribed by the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act, as amended, 50 United States Code Annotated App., sections 520 to 525, inclusive.

281.276 RETURN MUST SHOW MILITARY SERVICE.

Unless a certificate showing military service is filed as required by section 281.273, it shall be presumed that the owner of the property described in the notice of expiration of the time for redemption from delinquent taxes is not in such service. The filing of the certificate provided for in section 281.273 shall not affect the forfeiture of the real property described in such notice of the expiration of the time for redemption from delinquent taxes or their proceedings relating thereto except as expressly herein provided.

281.277 NOT TO AFFECT OTHER RIGHTS; DURATION.

Nothing contained in sections 281.273 to 281.277 shall be construed to prejudice or preclude any right secured to any person under the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act, as amended.

Sections 281.273 to 281.277 shall remain in force as long as the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act, as amended, shall remain in force.

When only such portion or fraction of the parcel bid in for the state shall be redeemed and discharged from taxes and assessments, the amount to be paid for such redemption and discharge from delinquent taxes and assessments shall be computed by the auditor of the county wherein such lands are situated, and shall be such a part or proportion of the amount designated by any such law permitting redemption and discharge on payment of a fraction or percentage of the total amount due, as provided in sections 281.39 and 281.40, as the tract taken or encumbered by the proceedings and so redeemed bears to the value of the entire parcel bid in for the state, and of which it forms a part. Any party interested in such computation and determination of value, and aggrieved thereby, may, within ten days following the filing thereof, appeal to the district court of the county wherein such land is situated, by filing written notice of such appeal and proof of service thereof, with the court administrator of such court.
