What is the Criteria for a Tax Sale or Lien Assignment?
For a residential property, if you owe more than $5,000 in either Real Estate Taxes and/or $1,000 in Sewer Taxes, or are more than two years in arrears, you will be identified for a tax sale / lien assignment. If the property has already been in a Tax Sale, one (1) day delinquency will constitute enough reason to include it in the next sale. If the property is abandoned or has no residential dwelling, and you are in arrears, you will be identified for a tax sale/ lien assignment. Commercial properties over one year in arrears will be identified for a tax sale/ lien assignment.
Please note: The only time that the DMV notifies us of a change in the status of your motor vehicle is when you transfer a plate from one vehicle to another. In all other cases, you must bring documentation in to Walter Topliff, Jr., Assessor, in order to adjust your bill. The date must appear on the document that this change occurred in order to credit your account properly. All changes will occur immediately upon receipt of this information and a refund form or adjusted bill will be created. You may also fax this information to Walter Topliff, Jr. at 860-763-8228 or email it to him at: email@example.com.
