Tax Notices on the Way

WINNSBORO (Dec. 1, 2016) – Forget to pay your property taxes? Hoping to get a good deal because someone else did? Then next week is your first opportunity to settle up or clean up as Fairfield County’s delinquent tax notices make their first run in The Independent Voice.

Approximately 600 listing of properties will appear next week in these pages and will run for two more weeks after. Property owners with outstanding bills will have this chance to make good with the Tax Man. But about three weeks after the final run of the notices in The Voice, the Auctioneer takes over.

That’s when savvy fortune hunters will have the opportunity to bid at the County Courthouse on properties whose owners did not pay The Man. Winning bidders will see their money go into an escrow account where it will earn interest for one year. Delinquent property owners will have that year to come up with those back taxes. If they do, the winning bidder keeps the interest. If not, the winning bidder becomes the new property owner.

Just like a late-night T.V. infomercial.

So make sure to pick up next week’s edition of The Independent Voice to find your property or find your best deal. Notices will appear in the Dec. 8, Dec. 15 and Dec. 22 editions.
