Fines, small tax bill send rowhouse to tax sale

In case you missed it yesterday: Check out the story of Tim Nickels, a roofer whose Baltimore rowhouse went to tax sale because of fines for the state of his back yard and $3.91 in mistakenly unpaid property taxes.

Nickels, who said he had no idea he owed the city any money, isn't losing his property. How he ended up in tax sale, though, is a heck of a tale.

Got any personal tax-sale stories?
