What are "secured" property taxes?

The term "secured" simply means that taxes are assessed against real property (land or structures). The tax is a lien that is "secured" by the land or structure. If the taxes remain unpaid after a period of five years, the property may be sold by the Tax Collector to cover the taxes owed.
