MS Code § 27-13-37 (2015) What's This?

When any property is offered for sale under authority of a warrant or writ of execution for the collection of franchise taxes, penalties, or interest, and no bid is submitted equal to the reasonable value of the property, the commissioner or his agent may bid therefor on behalf of the State of Mississippi an amount not to exceed the amount of the warrant and costs, and, if declared the successful bidder for the particular piece of property, such title as may be conveyed shall pass to the state, and the state's interest in the property may then be sold at public or private sale to the best interest of the state; provided, however, that the taxpayer shall have a period of sixty days from the date of such sale within which to redeem such property, except perishables, by payment of the entire tax due together with all penalties, interest, and lawful costs. In the event of such redemption, the commissioner shall issue, or cause to be issued, his certificate of redemption upon request of the taxpayer, which certificate of redemption may be filed as a deed in the appropriate public office.
