Important: Unpaid Real Estate Taxes become delinquent on April 1st of the year following the year of assessment. At this time, interest of 3% and an advertising charge is added to the tax amount due. If the taxes remain unpaid on or before June 1st, a tax certificate, or lien against the property, will be sold for the amount of the unpaid taxes, interest and costs. After two years, the tax certificate holder is eligible to file for a Tax Deed Application, which could result in the loss of the title to the property.
