Unpaid taxes are returned to tax claim January 15th of each year. On February 1st Interest of nine percent per annum begins. The tax bureau notifies delinquent taxable property owner(s) about the delinquent return by certified mail no later than July 31st.
If delinquent taxes are not paid during the year in which they are returned to the Bureau, on January 1st of the next year the claim becomes absolute, and preparation to offer the property at auction to recover the unpaid taxes begins. If your claim has become absolute we will only accept your Personal check until May 31st.
