Delinquent Real Estate Taxes|
Real estate taxes become delinquent on April 1 of the subsequent year. A minimum mandatory 3% charge plus advertising costs are imposed at that time. If the taxes remain unpaid, the delinquent properties are advertised once a week for three consecutive weeks prior to the tax certificate sale. The Tax Collector is required by law to hold a tax certificate sale on or before June 1 each year. Payments are accepted on advertised properties anytime prior to becoming a tax certificate. Once a tax certificate is issued, all applicable certificate fees are due.
