What are “secured” property taxes?
The term “secured” simply means taxes that are assessed against real property (e.g., land or structures). The tax is a lien that is “secured” by the land / structure even though no document was officially recorded. This means that if the taxes remain unpaid after a period of five (5) years, the property may be sold to cover the taxes owed.
