House Taxes

The house is fully paid for and has been for 30 years. So just the yearly taxes need to be paid which are due the first week in January. What happens when the taxes aren't paid? I just found out that the 2017 taxes weren't paid at all. TIA.

I assume you’re talking about property taxes. I only know California. If you don’t pay property taxes in California, eventually you’ll lose the house. Property taxed have nothing to do with whether or not the house is paid for.

Amiga is correct-eventually they can take the house if the property taxes aren’t paid.

Everyone makes mistakes. Just call and make arrangements to pay. They may even allow you to pay in payments rather than total amount all at once. Good luck!

I would actually check my records first to see if they made a mistake.

Make arrangements right away to pay. Otherwise you could lose the house at a tax sale.

There is probably some interest or penalties for late payment, but you can certainly remedy the oversight.

If necessary, call a real estate attorney.

I agree to call and make arrangements to pay them.

Here they print all the delinquent taxes in the newspaper in the spring, then at some point they are sold to a third party who then takes over collections at a much higher rate than if they just arranged payment with the county clerk’s office. One of my friends worked at the county clerk’s office for awhile, and she got the delinquent tax bills from the sheriff’s office and filed them in the clerk’s office.

Thanks for your responses. I despise someone that purposefully doesn't tell the truth.
