I still wouldn't call that

I still wouldn't call that buying it. I'd call it leasing with intent to own. Buying something is paying for it outright.

If you don't pay your property taxes they come take your land/house and auction it off for what you own in taxes. How do you own something if you must pay taxes on it or it can be forcibly taken from you? You're a tenant and the state is the landlord. A deed is not proof of ownership, it's just proof of who is tenant. Paying taxes on something once when you buy it is one thing, but a bill every year that you must pay or you are forcibly removed from the land is a whole other thing.

Please come join my forum if you're not a trendy and agree with my points of view.
