Why is my property on a TAX SALE list?

If you have been notified by certified mail that your delinquent RE, PP, and MV tax bills are now being collected by the offices of Pullman & Comely, you have been placed on a Tax Sale list by the Tax Collector due to the length of time of the delinquency. If you are behind 2 years, or on a payment plan and in default, or have already been placed on this list previously, your property has been scheduled to be sold at Public Auction to satisfy your debt. There are many circumstances that occur to cause an owner to be unable to pay all that is owed, but if a payment plan has been established and you are consistent in making payments every week or every month without fail, a longer period of time may be acceptable. This is NOT a long term solution; it simply is to get people through a tough time. If you have received such correspondence, you may contact Attorney Adam Cohen at the number on the letterhead.

If a bank holds a mortgage on your property, they will be notified through certified mail and may choose to pay the taxes owed on your behalf. If this occurs, they will add it to your mortgage payment soon afterwards.
