"Special assessments" includes amounts delinquent when the property became subject to a tax certificate, installments which became delinquent during the time the property is subject to a tax certificate and all installments payable after the date the county takes a tax deed under this chapter.

75.36(2)

(2) Acquisition of property by county, effect on liabilities.

75.36(2)(a)

(a) If property is acquired by a county taking a tax deed under this chapter, the county is not required to pay any special charges or special assessments until the property is sold by the county. In the case of lands designated as forest croplands or managed forest lands, the county is not required to pay any taxes under s. 77.04, 77.07 or 77.87 until the forest crop is cut. The liens of the tax certificate and of all general property taxes, special assessments, special charges and special taxes levied against the property shall merge in the county's title.

75.36(2)(b)

(b) If the county did not settle for unpaid special assessments or special charges under s. 74.29, the county treasurer shall notify all taxing jurisdictions that the county has acquired the property under this chapter. Each taxing jurisdiction shall certify to the county treasurer the unpaid special assessments and special charges to which the property is subject.

75.36(2)(c)

(c) If the county's title to the lands taken by tax deed is adjudged to be void, the county shall reinstate any canceled taxes and any liens previously merged under par. (a).

75.36(2m)

(2m) Notice; proceeds. Upon acquisition of a tax deed under this chapter if sub. (4) applies, the county treasurer shall notify the former owner, by registered mail or certified mail sent to the former owner's mailing address on the tax bill, that the former owner may be entitled to a share of the proceeds of a future sale. If the former owner does not request, in writing, payment within 60 days after receipt of that notice, the former owner forfeits all claim to those proceeds. If the former owner timely requests payment, the county shall send to the former owner the proceeds identified in sub. (3) (c) minus any delinquent taxes, interest and penalties owed by the former owner to the county in regard to other property and minus the greater of the following amounts:

75.36(2m)(a)

(a) Five hundred dollars plus 50% of the amount obtained by subtracting $500 from the proceeds identified in sub. (3) (c).

75.36(2m)(b)

(b) The actual costs of the sale as specified under sub. (3) (a) plus 2% of the sale price plus all amounts disbursed under sub. (3) (b) and plus the amount of property taxes that would have been owed on the property for the year during which the sale occurs if the county had not acquired the property.

75.36(3)

(3) Distribution of proceeds of sale. If a county sells property that was acquired by taking of a tax deed under this chapter, the county treasurer shall do all of the following:

75.36(3)(a)

(a) Determine the net proceeds from the sale of the property by subtracting from the sale price all of the following:

75.36(3)(a)1.

1. The following costs, including personnel costs associated with them: foreclosure costs, record-keeping costs, legal costs, advertising costs and title insurance costs. A county may establish a reasonable estimate of the average costs under this subdivision incurred with respect to property sold after the taking of a tax deed which it may use instead of determining the actual costs for any parcel sold by the county.

75.36(3)(a)1m.

1m. The following actual costs, including personnel costs associated with them: maintenance costs that are required for compliance with building codes or health orders, board-up costs, clean-up costs, demolition costs and all other costs that are reasonable and necessary to sell the property except costs under subd. 2.

75.36(3)(a)2.

2. The amount of real estate agent or broker fees paid for selling the property.

75.36(3)(a)3.

3. All amounts of unpaid general property taxes, special assessments, special charges and special taxes levied against the property sold, including interest and penalties imposed under s. 74.47 previously paid to taxing jurisdictions by the county.

75.36(3)(b)

(b) From the net proceeds of the sale of the property, as determined under par. (a), first pay any withdrawal tax and withdrawal fee due under s. 77.84 (3) (b) and then pay to taxing jurisdictions all special assessments and special charges to which the property is subject, including interest and any penalties imposed under s. 74.47. If the net proceeds are not sufficient to pay all outstanding amounts due, the net proceeds shall be prorated to each taxing jurisdiction based upon the ratio that the amount of all special assessments and special charges due that taxing jurisdiction bears to the amount of all special assessments and special charges levied against the property sold, including interest and any penalties imposed under s. 74.47. Amounts payable under this paragraph shall be paid to the taxing jurisdiction within 15 days after the last day of the month in which sale proceeds become available to the county.

75.36(3)(c)

(c) Distribute any remaining net proceeds that are subject to sub. (4).

75.36(4)

(4) Homestead proceeds. If the former owner had used the property sold as the former owner's homestead at any time during the 5 years preceding the county's acquisition of it under this chapter, the county shall distribute the remainder of the sale proceeds to that former owner.
