Revision In Tax Sale Law

Until this year, the courts in Tennessee had ruled that quiet title suits following a tax sale by the county, could not be filed until at least three years after the sale. Due to a 2008 amendment, the Tennessee legislature amended the law to provide that a quiet title action can now be brought after the one year redemption period. This should help facilitate the clearing of title of properties purchased at county tax sales.
