May I defer my taxes if a taxing unit has filed a suit in district court for failure to pay taxes on my property?

Yes. You may “abate,” the delinquent taxes if a taxing unit has filed a suit in district court for foreclosure purposes. If a judgment was rendered, you still may abate the taxes; however, you must do so five days prior to the tax sale.
