The Delinquent Tax Collector investigates and collects delinquent real property taxes, penalties and levy costs; finds and notifies taxpayers of taxes owed; and maintains an accurate up-to-date account of monies collected. Once a property tax bill is deemed delinquent (after March 15th of every year), the debt goes into execution and the County Treasurer sends the bill to the delinquent Tax Collector for collection.
