First half real estate taxes become delinquent on December 21. Interest accrues daily on the first half amount due until paid. Second half real estate taxes can be paid anytime on or before May 10 without interest.
Delinquent notices are mailed in June. Delinquent Tax listings are printed in the local newspaper in August which results in a publication fee.
Delinquent real estate goes into redemption on the 1st Tuesday in September. If the taxes remain unpaid after three years from that redemption date, the property becomes eligible for a tax foreclosure sale. The property is sold at a public auction after due process has been served.
