1. When a tax district holds more than one tax lien against a parcel, the liens need
not be redeemed simultaneously. However, the liens must be redeemed in reverse chronological order, so that the
lien with the most recent lien date is redeemed first, and the lien with the earliest
lien date is redeemed last. Notwithstanding the redemption of one or more of the liens against a parcel as provided
herein, the enforcement process shall proceed according to the provisions of this
article as long as the earliest lien remains unredeemed.
2. (a) When one or more liens against a parcel are redeemed as provided herein, but
the earliest lien remains unredeemed, the receipt issued to the person redeeming shall
include a statement in substantially the following form: “This parcel remains subject
to one or more delinquent tax liens. The payment you have made will not postpone the enforcement of the outstanding lien
or liens. Continued failure to pay the entire amount owed will result in the loss of the property.”
(b) Failure to include such a statement on the receipt shall not invalidate any tax
lien or prevent the enforcement of the same as provided by law.
3. When all of the liens against the parcel have been redeemed, a certificate of redemption
shall be issued upon request, as provided by section eleven hundred ten of this article.
