Delinquent Taxes

Real estate taxes become delinquent after the end of February each year. On March 1st, interest and penalty charges begin accruing on the base tax balance at 1.5% per month (1% interest, .5% penalty) or 18% per annum.   Payments made on delinquent taxes are first applied to charges, then to the base tax amount.  Unpaid delinquent taxes may be subject to lawsuit, incurring court costs, attorney and miscellaneous fees, and eventual sale of the property.

Total amount due is calculated with interest and penalty through the last day of the month. Other legal fees may be added during the month.

All tax year payoffs will be verified by the Trustee on the day of payment receipt. Payments will be applied and any remaining balance must be paid by the taxpayer before the tax lien can be removed.

These taxes can now be paid at the Trustee's office. Payment must be made by certified funds (cash, cashier's check or money order) once the delinquent tax suit has been filed.

After the conclusion of the delinquent tax suit, the county holds a tax sale to sell property in order to collect delinquent taxes.
