Especially after July 1st, when you are hit with the biggest penalty of the year. If this has happened to you, don’t worry! Johnson & Starr can help relieve the stress of burdensome past-due property tax bills within just a few days to get you back on your feet. Keep reading to learn about what happens after you are hit with this penalty and how we can help.

What Happens After You Are Hit with the July 1st Penalty?

After July 1st, you not only have to deal with the penalties of your delinquent property taxes nearly doubling, but you are faced with other problems that involve a property tax lien and tax foreclosure. A property tax lien is a legal claim attached to your property when you haven’t paid your property taxes. Once this lien is placed on your property, authorities can start the foreclose process on a property. If this process hasn’t happened already, July 1st is usually an indicator that this could happen soon and is the date where counties can foreclose on the most recent delinquent year of 2022. They could also sue on any previous year at any point now as well.
