The county sends you a tax bill for $1.63, only they mistakenly send it to the wrong address and it gets returned as undeliverable. You are listed in the phone book and can easily be found to rectify the mistake. Simple, right? Wrong. The home in question was sold via a tax sale in 1997. The couple who owns it didn't find out until they attempted to sell their house and someone else claimed it. Fortunately, the state's Tax Commission is helping the couple, nullifying the sale and defending them in court against the land company that wants the property for the $1.63 plus fees that they paid for it. Next up: the state supreme court.
