If the property to which subsection (1) of this section applies has been included on a foreclosure list, or a judgment of foreclosure entered, the property shall be removed from the foreclosure list, or judgment vacated, unless the proceeding against the property involves delinquent taxes other than those described in subsection (1) of this section.(4)(a) Upon removal from the foreclosure list, or upon vacation of the judgment, a penalty may not be imposed under ORS 312.110 (Removal of property from foreclosure proceedings) or 312.120 (Period during which property held by county).
If the penalty has been imposed, the penalty is abated, or if the penalty has been paid, upon application made to the county assessor on or before July 1 of the year immediately following the year of vacation or removal, the penalty shall be refunded out of the unsegregated tax collections account in the manner provided in ORS 311.806 (Refund of taxes on real and personal property).
Within 60 days after approval of an application under ORS 311.693 (Application to delay foreclosure), with respect to any property to which this section applies, the tax collector shall make the proper entries on the tax roll and shall remove the property from the foreclosure list and proceeding.
If a judgment has been entered foreclosing liens for delinquent taxes against any property which is the subject of an application filed under ORS 311.693 (Application to delay foreclosure), and the delinquent taxes include only those taxes described in subsection (1) of this section, or taxes in excess of those described in subsection (1) of this section are paid, the judgment shall be null and void and of no effect and the tax collector shall make the proper entries on the assessment and tax rolls to reflect the vacation of the judgment and to acknowledge the subsisting liens.
Nothing in this section shall remove or release property to which this section applies from the lien of any unpaid tax thereon, but the unpaid taxes shall remain valid and subsisting liens as though the foreclosure proceeding had not been instituted or as though the foreclosure proceeding had not been instituted and a judgment entered.
Nothing in this section shall affect a foreclosure proceeding instituted, or a judgment entered, to foreclose liens for delinquent taxes against properties subject to foreclosure if the delinquent taxes include taxes other than those described under subsection (1) of this section. Such foreclosure proceedings shall be instituted or continued without regard to this section and such judgment shall be of full force and effect as if this section did not exist.
Interest on taxes to which this section applies shall be determined from the same dates, in the same manner and until paid as for other property taxes remaining unpaid upon the due dates, upon preparation of the foreclosure list in accordance with ORS chapter 312 and subsection (1) of this section and upon entry and following a judgment of foreclosure.
