Tax Sale on Potter County Properties Sept. 12

County TCB Whittles List Of Properties For Sept. 12 Tax Sale

Potter County Tax Claim Bureau (TCB) has been working with property owners who have failed to pay their real estate taxes, while preparing for the annual “upset sale.” That’s a last-resort auction to sell those properties on which taxes for 2013 or earlier have not been paid. It will be held at 10 am on Monday, Sept. 12, in the Gunzburger Building auditorium. A list of the properties that are subject to sale has been posted on the Potter County website, pottercountypa.net (click on Departments/Tax Claim).

TCB has implemented a series of changes to make things easier for those who have fallen behind on their taxes, including a monthly installment option (owner-occupied properties only) and a credit card payment system. Those payments are accepted online only, through the Tax Claim Bureau website at pottercountypa.net. The credit card payment option is limited to overdue taxes (2014 and earlier). Deadline to pay the 2014 and prior real estate taxes by credit card is Aug. 31.

All of the changes have had positive results, according to TCB Director Deanna Johnston. “The number of delinquent properties has been tracking downward in recent years,” she said. “Selling someone’s property due to unpaid taxes is always a last resort and we work with anyone who has fallen behind to try to avoid that outcome.”

Tax Claim Bureau office is located in Suite 111 of the Gunzburger Building, 1 North Main Street, Coudersport PA 16915; telephone (814) 274-0488, Option 1.
