Behind on Property Taxes? You Have Options
Sell Your New Orleans Home for Cash, Pay Off the Back Taxes, and Pocket the Rest
Are Back Taxes Haunting You?
Property taxes are essential to your local government, supplying the necessary funds to keep parks, libraries, and even public schools open and available to its residents. Because these taxes are so critical to a municipality’s budget, your local taxing authority will go to great lengths to collect what is due from homeowners, including selling your house.
In some cases, your mortgage lender will front the funds to cover back property taxes, as this benefits the lender more than the alternative — the government selling a tax lien on the property. But generally, this would be the case only if you are current on mortgage payments.
Some homeowners succeed in reducing their tax bill by having the value of their home reassessed. And sometimes a homeowner is able to obtain a tax abatement or exemption. But if you’re behind on paying property taxes and believe that you’re out of options, consider an alternative.
