Property Taxes Foreclosure & Forfeiture

Property taxes… “I’ll get around to them…”

If you have ever said or thought this, BEWARE! Did you know that if you live or own property in Wayne County, alone, you may be one of 70,000 persons being served! A delinquency of three years in your property taxes will bring action against your property! If you ignore the notices being delivered to you, your property will be taken by the county and sold to the highest bidder. This is where we can help!

We can help you file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy case. This will provide you relief by removing you from the foreclosure list and extending your time to pay by 5 years. Take initiative now and save your property!

Tax forfeiture, tax delinquency, and tax foreclosure can all be taken care of in Chapter 13 while, at the same time, it can often reduce your car payment, stop all other creditors from bothering you while you repay your taxes, and even the fee charged by the lawyer can be zero down and spread out over 5 years.

A lot of people don’t know that if you are 3 years late on your property taxes, the county forfeits your home and sells it at auction. Even more people don’t know that if you file Chapter 13 by the last possible day, usually sometime in February, you can stop the forfeiture and have 5 years to pay back the taxes (while stopping all your other creditors from bothering you at the same time).
