WMDT 47 NEWS - More and more people are losing their homes simply because they owe a few hundred dollars in back taxes. That's according to a new report by The National Consumer Law Center.
The group says outdated state laws allow big banks and other investors to then sell the homes, often for a big profit. In some cases, homeowners have lost their houses over as little as 400 dollars. And the report shows this is happening a lot to seniors.
