Tax Forfeiture Land Program (TFL)

When land is forfeited, no taxes are collected. The tax-forfeited land program is intended to make this state-owned land productive, taxable property again. In Minnesota, the County Auditor administers and manages the unsold inventory of State of Minnesota tax-forfeited properties on behalf of the taxing subdivision, including the school district, city and county. Tax forfeited properties are those on which real estate property taxes were not paid, title to the land and buildings was forfeited, and title is not vested in the State of Minnesota. Following a review period and in accordance with MN Statutes, these properties are classified and open to the public for purchase.
