No whomever the property owner is, or will be, is responsible…the county doesn’t care who pays it, they just lien the property until its paid…and will sell the lien as a tax lien (or deed) auction if necessary. If nobody pays up, you can buy the tax lien (or “tax deed” in some states) for pennies on the dollar.
Yes, but will it be possible for a homeowner to make arrangements to pay the back taxes by paying a little extra on a monthly basis?
Or will the owner have to make a lump sum payment?
I ask because even though his payments after three arck does it’s thing will be considerably lower, if he has to pay back a lump sum of thousands of dollars he then won’t be able to make the 3A payments on time.
This is especially true of the people who don’t have the $7995. If they don’t have that, they probably don’t have the tax money either.
In my own 3 a situation I am still paying a monthly payment to the lender.
Depending on the State, it may take several years of unpaid taxes before the State would sell it for taxes. Deal with the immediate issue and forget taxes for now. They should have several years to save for and pay all the back taxes or make arrangements. Let’s get the property saved first.
