Frequently Asked Questions

What does "tax defaulted" mean?
Tax defaulted means there is a delinquent tax against the property. We prepare an annual list of property that is "tax defaulted" at the end of the fiscal year (June 30.) This list is published in the Times Standard newspaper on or about the 1st week in September of the following year.

If the "tax defaulted" notation is printed on your bill, it is an indication that the Tax Collector shows delinquent taxes for a prior year.

Five years after the 1st year of delinquency, the property will be eligible for sale at public auction, and will be subsequently sold if the taxes are not paid.
