Property Tax Interest Rate in Kentucky

What is the interest rate on delinquent property taxes in Kentucky?

A house went into charge off and taxes for 2007, 2008, and 2009 were bought by three different banks at the court house. I have contacted all 3 banks and have bought each years worth of taxes. What interest do I have over the charged off property?

Consult with an attorney in your state to learn the maximum interest rate allowed for this type of debt.

Also, charge-off is not used in this context commonly, so I am unsure what you mean when you use that term. I suspect you mean foreclosure. If my theory is correct, then you should be working with an attorney on this matter to be certain you preserve your rights and protect yourself from potential liabilities.

However, if by your question, "What interest do I have in the property?" you mean, "What are my rights to the properties where I purchased the property tax liens?" then that, too, is a question for an attorney in your state. A person (or government) that owns a property tax lien has the right to foreclose on the property in some states. Again, this is a question you should ask an attorney, who will be able to review your documentation, ask probing questions, and advise you precisely.
