The number of notices to county property owners who’ve missed paying their property taxes increased “dramatically” over last year, reported county Tax Collector Dan McAllister today.
The 72,184 notices going out today mark a 12.6 percent increase over the notices mailed to delinquent tax payers last year, McAllister’s office said.
The delinquencies total $233 million, about 5 percent of the tax total.
McAllister, from his press release:
Sadly these are not the best financial times for property owners. We realize that some of these delinquencies may be caused by the specter of foreclosure, bank loan defaults and tight economic times for many taxpayers.
