Due to me not working because of my last surgery. I havent paid my personal property taxes. I know come October they will be sending me another bill for personal property taxes. Will they let me double it and pay it in nov or dec,or will they forclose on my house in Oct when its time to send the new bill out? Thanks for any information,
Jamie

No they won't foreclose - unless there is a Gestapo sort of state. MOST that I know for sure, just sell a tax certificate. It's a lein on the home, where if you sell you must pay them. Meantime, the note bears interest.

Heard of "tax auctions"? Here's the deal: They have tax bills overdue and by the way usually a Year overdue. Best is Go Talk to them, tell them you Want to pay but can't. Don't hide - same for mortgage late.

So tell em & then get a payment plan, partial forgiveness, show medical bills, tax return, Really be prepared to Prove it. Then if there is a tax cert sold, the bidders start at say 20% interest, then bid lower, til someone wins the bid to pay the taxes & earn that % for the bill. You'd have to leave unpaid for 2 yrs or more to have the home foreclosed - and if there are Mortgages they take precedence. If the home's paid OFF, that's what you need to be concerned with.

Solid advice... just for a note, they will foreclose at some point, although I'm pretty sure it would be around the 1.5 - 2 year mark of not paying your property taxes at all. I think Doreen covered everything, and it would be a great idea to follow her advice

Vagirl,

Doreen gave some awesome advice. You may also want to contact the tax assessment office and explain your situation to them. They may have programs in place to help you, or at the very least set you up on a payment plan.

If you lived in my county, it might take them 10 years to catch up with you! You're lucky to get a bill here, and they wonder why the county is broke!

But, yes, go talk to them. I'm sure they'll agree, something is better than nothing.

Where do you live where there is personal property tax? I've heard of it, thankfully have not ever dealt with it.

I assume by your name, you are in Virginia. Your house is NOT part of your personal property taxes. Personal property tax in on your car, boat, motorcycle, etc. For those of you not in Virginia, she said *personal* property tax, not real estate property tax.

As for paying late, yes, you can. I've done it. Mostly by accident, but one county tracked me down 3 years after I left the county. I thought I paid it that year, but with moving, I guess I didn't. They never took my car, suspended my license, or anything. Let alone did they touch my house (granted, my house was in Fairfax, the back taxes were in Mongomery (SWVA)). Oh, and I think it was just a 10-20% late fee.

Over here they add a certain amount each month that you pay late until March or maybe April, after that the property taxes will be sold at an auction and some one else is holding a lien on your property. Only if you file for bankruptcy it will be gone, otherwise they will make a gain...

That is how it works in FL.
