For those unfamiliar with this process:
The purchase of a tax certificate does not constitute purchase of the land. Purchasing the tax certificate is equivalent to paying the taxes and fees on a property, if you then pay the taxes on that property for the required number of years (3 years in town, 4 years for rural) you may then take legal action to acquire the land. If during that time the current landowner wishes to buy back the tax certificate they may due so by paying back the purchase price of the certificate plus interest.
