DescriptionThe area of tax-forfeited land that is county-administered in Minnesota is currently estimated at almost 2.9 million acres--a decrease of about 17% since the mid-1960's. This decrease is the result of a change in land sales, land forfeitures, and other land transfers. Not only have land sales decreased since the early 1960's, but also less land has been forfeited back to the counties. Although the tax-forfeited acreage sold increased each year, the value of the land sold increased dramatically--from $6.33 per acre in 1960 to nearly $70.00 per acre in 1974.
