Real Property Tax Sale

Real Property Tax Sale Forbearance Application

If you have received a Tax Sale-Notice of Delinquency dated April 2023, your property may be eligible for a Tax Sale Hardship Forbearance which would exclude it from the July 2023 Tax Sale.

An application for forbearance will be approved for residential properties receiving the homestead deduction if the tax amount that could be sold at tax sale is $7,500 or less. This amount may include multiple periods of liabilities that have not been sold at tax sale. OTR, in its discretion, may approve any application for any real property that demonstrates hardship, despite how much is owed or whether it is receiving the homestead deduction.

Regarding the Tax Sale Forbearance Program: Properties in the forbearance program continue to accrue interest on delinquent amounts at the rate of 1.5% per month or part thereof (18% per annum). A forbearance application must be filed every year to apply for exclusion from the tax sale. If the amount that can be sold exceeds $7,500 and the property does not receive the homestead deduction, the forbearance may no longer be possible absent demonstrated hardship.

The application submission period is April 19, 2023-June 19, 2023.
