Madison County, Tennessee v. Delinquent Taxpayers for 2012

Court of Appeals of Tennessee, Jackson

April 26, 2018

MADISON COUNTY, TENNESSEE, ET AL.
v.
DELINQUENT TAXPAYERS FOR 2012, ET AL.

          Assigned on Briefs April 3, 2018

          Appeal from the Chancery Court for Madison County No. RD71681 James F. Butler, Chancellor

         This appeal involves the right of redemption after a tax sale. After the tax sale occurred, the original property owners purportedly conveyed their right of redemption to a third party through a contract of sale and quitclaim deed. The third party filed a motion to redeem the property. The trial court denied the motion to redeem, concluding that the third party did not meet the relevant statutory definition of a person entitled to redeem the property. For the following reasons, we affirm and remand for further proceedings.
