Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

10-24-2Return of tax certificate as release of claims--Notations in record by treasurer.

If the person who redeems a tax certificate on real property does not demand a receipt or tax certificate of redemption from the treasurer, the return of the tax certificate of purchase for cancellation operates as a release of all claims to the real property described in the tax certificate. The treasurer, after receiving the tax certificate of purchase, shall mark on the tax certificate sale record opposite the description of the real property for which the tax certificate of purchase has been issued, and opposite the record showing all payments of subsequent taxes, "sale canceled by return of tax certificate."
