In extremely rare cases, this can happen. We have provided the NC Statute regarding this matter for your review:
NC Gen. Stat. 105-374 Foreclosure of tax lien by action in nature of action to foreclose a mortgage
(e) Subsequent Taxes. - The complaint in a tax foreclosure action brought under this section by a taxing unit shall, in addition to alleging the tax lien on which the action is based, include a general allegation of subsequent taxes which are or may become a lien on the same real property in favor of the plaintiff unit. Thereafter it shall not be necessary to amend the complaint to incorporate the subsequent taxes by specific allegation. In case of redemption before confirmation of the foreclosure sale, the person redeeming shall be required to pay, before the foreclosure action is discontinued, at least all taxes on the real property which have at the time of discontinuance become due to the plaintiff unit, plus penalties, interest, and costs thereon. Immediately prior to judgment ordering sale in a foreclosure action (if there has been no redemption prior to that time), the tax collector or the attorney for the plaintiff unit shall file in the action a certificate setting forth all taxes which are a lien on the real property in favor of the plaintiff unit (other than taxes the amount of which has not been definitely determined).
Orders of Confirmation are executed by a Judge and pursuant to a Judge’s schedule. Sherman and Rodgers, PLLC, typically presents Orders of Confirmation within 5 business days of the expiration of the upset bid period.
