Public Lands | Tax Forfeited Lands

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 property taxes. Individuals and state agencies can apply to the Secretary of State’s Office for the acquisition of these lands. Our goal is to return these lands to productive use and to get them back on the tax rolls.
