Time Running Out For Those Who Owe Back Taxes

Time Running Out For Those Who Owe Back Taxes

September 5th, 2013
taxsalePotter 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 an auction to sell those properties on which taxes for 2011 or earlier have not been paid. 

It will be held at 10 am on Monday, Sept. 9, in the Gunzburger Building auditorium. 

A list of the properties that are subject to sale by auction can be found on the Potter County website, pottercountypa,net (click on Departments/Tax Claim). Each day, the number of properties on the list decreases as owners make payment.

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. 

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.

I think this is B.S. there are people out there that should be paying there taxes but fail to do it why? because they know nothing will happen to them.. Pay the 10% each year just so nothing can be taken from them.. Time to cut them loose there are people out there that will buy there property at a sheriff sale. Get the property back on the tax dole

Some of the property on there isnt worth what they owe in taxes.

Talk about the tax dole. Publish the names of people on welfare before you try to embarrass land owners.Some need the help, others make it a living. Print all the names and let the people see. If you don't like it get a job.

The first writer here is wrong. My daughter signed up for the installment plan which they call stay-of-sale agreement and she was told that you only get one shot at it so if you fail to make your payments you end up right back up for tax sale and you can't get the installment stay-of-sale a second time. In her case it saved her losing her home and the home of my grandchildren and yes she has made the payments on time and is grateful. I think it is a good program and you are wrong when you say nothing will happen if you fail to make a payment.

Wish they would do this in Cameron county. People can not pay their taxes every year like other people, but they can take a fancy trip to the beach every year.

You stop and think about it, you DO NOT own your home.

The State/government does and your taxes are "rent payments".

You have to maintain their home and follow their rules for use of the property.

Well, have to say that I never quite thought about home ownership in those terms, but your are dead-on. You build a $200,000 home, work your butt off (while paying taxes on EVERYTHING) for 30 years and still end up with absolutely nothing because you didn't pay Uncle Sam your "RENT". WOW!!!! I now have a whole new perspective on things. Might just throw in the towel, kick back and enjoy life...medical assistance, cash assistance, food stamps, etc....

"You stop and think about it, you DO NOT own your home."

Yes you do if you are vested in fee simple. A private lending institution may hold a lien against a home, but they ain't the government.

"The State/government does and your taxes are "rent payments"."

Nope. This is a ridiculous and false idea about property ownership and what constitutes rent-seeking.

"You have to maintain their home and follow their rules for use of the property."

Because roads, bridges, schools, fire departments, etc. maintain themselves sans the "rents" you speak of, amirite?
