There is no redemption period AFTER this sale which means the sale is final.
How Long Can I Go Without Paying Property Taxes in Utah?
The Property Tax Redemption Period ends March 15 of the current year for taxes that are 5 years late. Any payment received before March 15 of the current year will be applied to the most current tax year first. Once any property tax becomes 5 years late as of March 15th, every year of property tax will be due to stop a property tax sale on the 4th Thursday of May.
