A Quarter Of A Million In Delinquent Culberson Taxes

CULBERSON COUNTY, TX (Ben Caxton) — The Culberson County Allamoore ISD Board got taken to school on delinquent taxes at its last meeting, according to the Van Horn Advocate. Carmen Perez, representing Linebarger, Goggan, Blair, and Sampson, presented the Delinquent Tax Collection Report for 2016-2017 noting that the 2017 delinquent taxes were forwarded to their office for collection on July 1. Tax statements go out on October 1 of each year with the taxes due by January 31 of the subsequent year. The Culberson County Appraisal District handles current and delinquent tax collections through June 30. Then the attorneys for delinquent tax collections enter the picture. Perez reviewed the process used in the pursuit of delinquent tax collections from the initial letter to the property owner to the possible foreclosure of the property. She reported that 43 lawsuits were filed in 2016-2017 representing $252,948 in tax levies owed to CCAISD and resulting in 41 judgments. Other duties performed in the delinquent tax collection process include monitoring bankruptcies and pre-litigation research. At the meeting, the board also authorized posting official notice of its intent to approve its proposed tax levy for the coming year. The proposed rate is $1.04 per $100 valuation for Maintenance and Operations plus an additional 45-1/2 cents for Debt Service. The tax rate will be adopted at the regular meeting scheduled for September 18.
