If you don't pay your property taxes, the city has the right to foreclose on your property. But did you know that in many jurisdictions, including Maryland and the District of Columbia, the city has the right to the entire value of your house if you have even a very small unpaid property tax liability? In advance of the Supreme Court taking up this issue in the spring, GW's Center for Washington Area Studies is hosting an expert panel of academic experts, a legal advocate for the elderly, a developer of these properties, and the plaintiffs in the Supreme Court case to discuss these issues.
