Resolution #2012-8 Delinquent Property Taxes

There have been several incidents in recent years where Montanans have lost their homes to out of state companies that specialize in manipulation of provisions of the laws that apply to delinquent property taxes.  These companies pay the delinquent taxes, acquire the home, evict the owner, sell the property and rack up a big profit.

Recommendation:  MLCT will support legislation suggested by the City of Missoula to provide better information, clearer notice and additional protection for property owners in tax delinquency proceedings.
