Millions of dollars in limbo for Fulton homeowners

ATLANTA -- The Fulton County Sheriff has millions of dollars in a special fund and some of it may belong to you.

Each month, county officials and the banks auction foreclosed homes as well as hold tax lien sales on the courthouse steps.

When it comes to tax lien sales, homeowners should take a deep breath and another look before they walk away from the sales. They could be entitled to lots of money.

It's in the hands of the Fulton County Sheriff.

It starts with the sale of the tax lien, in which buyers often pay more than the lien itself in order to get it. Any money left over after the tax lien purchaser gets his money back, together with a 20 percent commission, goes into a Fund administered by the Sheriff.

That fund now totals $9.9 million.

Much of that money could belong to homeowners who have never claimed it.
