    I'm hoping for some discussion from the legal minded people here at USMB.

    I am researching property rights and the effects of owning land that was sold by the government and a land patent issued for the transfer. I came across this article and it got me wondering, "is it true?" Is the article accurate.

    Any input would be appreciated.

    Allodial Titles & Land Patents

    Has anyone else heard about this quit claim to the International monetary fund?

    Does it REALLY matter? No one actually owns their land anyway. You ALWAYS have to pay taxes on it and if you fail to pay those taxes, the Government takes the land. You never owned it at all.

    Any case law for that assumption?

    Yes to me it actually matters. We own a fairly large plot of land that is an original land patent that originates from United States under the swamp land act of 1850. It was not sold by the government until 1944. It is patent #911 that was approved by the Iowa legslature and signed by the governor. It was issued "forever", aprove by the united States and it includes any and all mineral, gas, water, etc... rights of any kind whatsoever. There are laws and cases on the books pertaining to patented lands. So I am looking for help with the legal knowledge not someones simplistic precepts on the matter. If you have anything to add that may be helpful I'd appreciate it.

    So what happens if you stop paying your land tax? Why the same thing that happens to a renter that stops paying their rent.
