What do I need to do to redeem my home after a tax sale?

My home was sold at a tax sale and I wasn't notified about it.  How do I redeem my home?  I was told that if I paid the taxes I could get it back.  What do I need to do besides paying the taxes?

First, you need to hire a real estate attorney.  Then, go down to your county Tax Assessor Collector's office and tell them that you want to redeem your property.  Do it as soon as possible, the amount you will have to pay goes up as time passes.  You probably did receive notice of the sale in the mail to the address that the county has on file, but if you didn't then you can sue them for wrongful foreclosure.
