Supreme Court of West Virginia issues opinion regarding the notice required in tax sale / tax deed

On March 1, 2012, the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia issued an interesting opinion in a tax sale / tax deed matter that challenged the statutory Take Notices in West Virginia as well as the effect of a bankruptcy proceeding on a tax sale. Strangely, neither the owners nor the lender raised any Due Process violations. The case was remanded to the trial court. If this case arose in Illinois, it may have implicated the Indemnity Fund provisions of the Illinois Property Tax Code.
