A: In Georgia, the timeline for receiving proceeds from the sale of a tax-foreclosed property can vary depending on the specific county's procedures and the complexity of the case. It's not uncommon for the process to take several months. If you filed your claim papers in July 2022 and haven't received a response, you may want to contact the county tax commissioner's office or consult with a tax attorney to inquire about the status of your claim and ensure it's being processed correctly.
