2013 Tax Sale Payment Plan

Share this post

The May tax deadline has come and gone and preparation for conducting a Tax Sale begins. Tax payers who have not paid taxes due from May 10, 2012 or before may find themselves subject to tax sale on October 29, 2013 at 10:00am, said Treasurer Mike Bucko.
SRI of Indianapolis is conducting the tax sale for the county and will notify taxpayers via Certified Mail in August of 2013 followed by a 1st Class Tax Sale notice mailed in early October, of 2013 for those who have not responded to the certified mailing. A non-refundable fee of $100.00 that covers advertising costs and SRI’s fees will be applied to each certified taxpayer.
You may be eligible to be placed on a tax sale payment plan which provides an extended time period to pay but all delinquent taxes and all penalties are collected. This is not an alternative to the annual payment method but you may be eligible said Bucko
Taxpayers on a payment plan WILL remain on the tax sale list and be advertised three consecutive times beginning in September. Once certified the only way to prevent being advertised is to pay the amount owed in full prior to the dead line for advertising.
If you are in the payment plan and have made your down payment and all monthly payments on or before the 10th of each month due up to and including October 10, 2013 without fail you may be removed from the tax sale list October 28, 2013. Late payments are not allowed and will void the agreement
You may call the Treasurer’s Office at 219-465-3470 for an appointment Monday – Friday 8:30am to 4:30pm except holidays with the Treasurer or his Chief Deputy Treasurer at 155 Indiana Ave. Suite 209, Valparaiso, IN.
