Delinquent tax notices published

WINNSBORO – Fairfield County’s 2019 delinquent tax notices are making their first appearance this week inside The Voice. If you forgot to pay your property taxes, or if you’re hoping to get a good deal because someone else forgot, you can find the listing of properties on pages 7, 8 and 11.

Property owners with outstanding bills will have this chance to make good with the Tax Man. But on Dec. 16 the auctioneer takes over.

That’s when prospective buyers will have the opportunity to bid at the County Courthouse on properties whose owners did not pay their outstanding taxes. 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.

Notices will appear three successive weeks – in the Nov. 27, Dec. 5 and Dec. 12 issues of The Voice.
