  2.  Upon the granting by the court of temporary possession of any property under section 447.632 and again upon the approval by the court of a sheriff's deed under section 447.625, the circuit court shall direct payment to the county collector of all principal land taxes theretofore paid into the circuit court.  In addition, in any order granting a sheriff's deed under section 447.625, the court shall also order the permanent extinguishment of liability against the grantee of the sheriff's deed, and all successors in interest; excepting however, any defendant in such action, for penalties, interest, attorney fees, and court costs arising from actions to collect delinquent land taxes due on the subject property.  The funds paid into the court for land taxes shall then be paid to the county collector.  If an owner of such a property moves the court for restoration of the subject property under section 447.638, the owner shall pay into the circuit court all land tax amounts currently due and owing on the property, including all statutory penalties, interest, attorney fees, and court costs retroactive to the date of accrual.

  3.  If the party which brought the action under sections 447.620 to 447.640 dismisses its action prior to gaining temporary possession of the property, it shall recover any amounts paid into the circuit court prior to that date for principal land taxes.

  4.  In the event that an owner of the tax parcel regains possession under section 447.638, the party which brought the action under sections 447.620 to 447.640 shall recover from that owner an amount equal to that paid into the court by said party and paid to the county collector under this section, and shall be granted judgment thereon.
