Pay Your Taxes or Go to Court
Amid budget problems in Sullivan County, leaders are getting serious about unpaid taxes. If you own property in the county and haven’t paid the 2011 property taxes, you could be taken to court. Officials say there about 1,600 unpaid tax bills in the county and if they’re not paid by April 1st, the Sullivan County Chancery Court will take over. Unpaid taxes could result in higher penalties, court costs, potential attorney’s fees and eventually loss of property.
