What happens if I do not keep my plan current or up to date?

If the installment plan defaults, a new plan may not be started until July 1 of the following fiscal year. Additional penalties at an annual rate of 18% will continue to be computed on the unpaid balance each time a plan is restarted. Please be aware that an Installment Plan of Redemption cannot be started after the property becomes Subject To Power To Sell. This occurs when the property has been delinquent for more than five years. 

Example: If you have delinquent taxes from the 1997-98 tax year, as of July 1, 2003, you CANNOT participate in the installment plan. You must pay in full the amount of outstanding taxes to keep the property from being sold at the Public Auction that is scheduled for early 2004.
