How do I get a Collector’s deed for the property?

Before you are eligible to receive a Collector’s deed you must follow the procedures described in state statute RSMO 140.405.  The following is a link to the state website - go to Collectors-then Tax Sale Manual:  Missouri State Tax Commission .  This statute sets forth the requirements that must be met. The Collector’s Office will give out instructions and a checklist to help with the process. Neither the Collector nor the employees of the Collector’s office can provide legal advice. We recommend consulting a real estate attorney to help you comply with the statutes.
