Let's assume that the tax lien is the only lien, and that the taxes date back to 2009. If I buy the lien from the county, I will then want to foreclose on the property. What amount can I foreclose for? Am I allowed to tack on any additional fees on top of the back taxes? My goal here is to own the property (it's a piece of land, so the taxes owed are less than $2000).
