The two most populous areas in Washington are King (1,931,000+) and Pierce (795,000+) County.
Washington is classified as a Tax Deed state. After a period of 3 years of unpaid taxes, the county treasurer will initiate a foreclosure on the properties and list them as delinquent. All delinquent property taxes that are not redeemed by the property owner by the end of 3 years "after the property first became delinquent" will be foreclosed upon.
