Unpaid Certifications
​​Annual Turnover Instructions

Each year Tax Collectors turnover unpaid balances to the Tax Claim Bureau for delinquent collections.  The previous year's unpaid regular tax bills and any interims/changes that were due by 12/31 of the previous calendar year are due by mid-January.  In July, any unpaid interims/changes that were due by 6/30 should be turned over.

Tax Collectors are required to have the respective taxing body sign off on the amounts being turned over.  A certification must be completed, then reviewed and signed by the authority.  A link to the most current certification form is below.  These forms can be emailed to the attention of the Director or mailed to same.
