Treasurer-Tax Collector recommending the Board adopt Resolution 145-2012 to opt out of the option to sell tax-defaulted nonresidential commercial property after three years.
 
Body
Fiscal Impact/Change to Net County Cost
None
 
Background
According to revisions in Revenue and Tax Code 3691, five years or more, or three years or more in the case of nonresidential commercial property, after the property has become tax defaulted, the Tax Collector shall have the power to sell the property in a tax sale. Previously, both residential and non-residential commercial properties had the same five years or more requirements. The law now requires a board resolution to opt out of the three year option.
 
Reason for Recommendation
Continue to allow commercial property owners the same five years after default as other property owners to pay all taxes owing and redeem the property before it is sold at public auction.
 
Action(s) to be taken following Board approval
1) The Board of Supervisiors to adopt a resolution to Opt out of the Option to sell non-residential commercial property in three years.
2) Authorize the Chairman of the Board to sign the resolution.
