a. Tax Forfeited lands are held by the Public Lands Division for sale. These lands represent properties that have been forfeited to the state of Mississippi for non-payment of ad valorem taxes. Individuals, corporations, and state agencies may apply to the Secretary of State’s Office for the acquisition of these lands. Our goal is to return these lands to productive use on the local tax rolls.
