The property owner will have a chance to redeem and get caught up or when the property sells. Go to county treasurer for more information about how the process work. You will receive interest on your money for paying the taxes. If the owner does not redeem you could possibly gain the property, however this usually does not happen. When the property is sold the back taxes are paid off.

This question is probably best directed to the clerk of the court in the county you are interested in buying. Perhaps even a good real estate attorney.
It is, however, my understanding that homes can be auctioned or sold for non-payment of Real Estate taxes. However, each jurisdiction has varying rules regarding such.
Best wishes, Jim
