:wtf:
An 83-year-old retired engineer in Michigan underpaid his property taxes by $8.41. In response, Oakland County seized his property, auctioned it off to settle the debt, and pocketed nearly $24,500 in excess revenue from the sale.

Under Michigan law, it was all legal. And hardly uncommon.

You never really "own" any property in this country. Super :|

In MI, if you have any delinquent taxes owed for three consecutive years, the county can take your shit and pocket the profit. BUT, you're notified well in advance. This article is a bit one sided.

How do I know?

When I lived in Detroit in 2014, I was around a ton of people delinquent on their taxes. I remember talking to my neighbor about getting "another tax foreclosure notice" and she'd call the county to work out some extension or payment plan.

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

One sided or not, I hope the fuckers in that office that took his house die a slow horrible death.

An 83 year old displaced from his house over $9 ? Fuck that state, another reason to not live there.

reading further down the article, the headline is a hair click baity. He was retired and bought this in an upcoming area circa 2011/12 (as a rental or investment). He later moved from the town. He miscalculated interest on a tax underpayment and missed the notices as he wasn't living in the house.

Still a wtf process over a very small sum of money.

while i agree, sums of money owed under $100 should not be able to be fast tracked through this process.

Okay, that changes things a little, but still, for $9 even California and it's vampire .gov wouldn't take your house.

yeah. I see how it could happen. But him living in it or not, there should be a check-balance or go/nogo formula to prevent this fucking headline.
