Hopes were high that the controversial developer of the Angel Oak land would be unable to pay their taxes on the land, and would forfeit the property in a delinquent tax sale on Monday, October 5.

Read more stories on this subject in our Angel Oak topic page.But when Saturday, October 3, rolled around the owners had ponied up for the $83,853.52 in owed taxes and the land was off the list.

Oh, and reader beware: The page was updated on Saturday, and I noted the update today, Sunday. The county's Delinquent Tax Division is only open Monday through Friday, so we'll have to wait until then for confirmation.
