Delinquent Property Tax Sales
Wisconsin State Law provides for the transferring title to land when taxes are delinquent. The delinquency must be more than one year in Milwaukee County. Milwaukee County uses the "in rem" foreclosure process. Milwaukee County does not sell foreclosed properties for back taxes. All foreclosed property is sold for fair market value, the way any other piece of property is sold.
