Karen asked a good question. This is Mississippi we're talking about. Nothing in this state operates as it should, even the legality of property possession. Abandoned lots are being sold for $50-200. If you squat on a property, pay the taxes on it first. Merely the possession of the receipt will stop any type of legal actions against you "in Mississippi". After the second year, the property, land etc is yours. So, Yes Karen, it is possible.
