What happens if I cannot pay the full redemption amount?

If you are unable to pay the full redemption amount (for example, unpaid taxes for all defaulted years plus penalties and charges), you may start an installment plan of Redemption.  This plan allows you to make payments on your defaulted taxes over a five-year period beginning on the date you make the first payment of the installment plan.

NOTE: you must qualify for the installment plan within five years of the time the property first became tax-defaulted.
