The American Dream: Owning a home has become the American Nightmare for a growing number of people across the country.
Imagine owning your home free and clear, after decades of hard work and faithful payments, only to lose it over a $40 tax lien. Well that’s exactly what’s happening to a growing number of Americans who have had their homes stolen from them, after governments around the country sold miniscule tax liens and allowed greedy investors to then seize the homes.
Believe it or not, you could be at risk of losing your home over even minute amounts of unpaid property taxes. Earlier this week, the Washington Post covered the story of a 76-year-old Marine Veteran who lost his $197,000 home over a $134 property tax debt.
It all happened because governments around the country have been placing liens on properties when home owners fail to pay their property tax bills. The homes are then sold to greedy investors who foreclose on the homes, raking in profits that sometimes add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars.
