If found that in Texas and Minnesota that Allodial Titles were granted to individuals who completely owned their property, were free of taxes and tax liens, and were willing to pay a "fee" to the state that averaged between 6 and 8 times their annual taxes.
It is also my understanding that allodial titles were granted in the past, and I can't find anything that says they can't be granted today, it's just that no one knows about them, have never worked with them, and usually respond by telling you it can't be done, but can't tell you why it can't be done?
I believe that allodial titles were law, and may still be law, its just that if you can never truely own your property, then the government always has a way to take it away from you.
My end goal is to own my property, really own it.
You and I both know that if your property can be taken away for taxes, then you don't own it, you're only renting it from the State.
As I understand your answer, there are no allodial titles in the State of Texas. If I find this to be incorrect I'll let you know.
I own two pieces of property:
A Home inside the City Limits of San Antonio - This is already incorporated
And I'm building a vineyard in Stacy Texas, which is where I will build my retirement home, this property is an hour east of San Angelo, not incorporated.
Can I file for an allodial title for my vineyard?
