Tax Collection Enforcement

When taxes are not paid in full by the last day to pay, by state law, it becomes the duty of the collector to proceed with collection enforcement measures, as prescribed by state statute.

The Tax Collector reserves the right to enforce collection of taxes by use of any of the following methods, which include but are not limited to:

  • Denial of building permits
  • Denial or revocation of any license or permit required in the operation of a business, including a health permit
  • Denial or suspension of motor vehicle registration renewals
  • Enforcement on any lien upon real estate by levy and sale (sale of land for taxes), or levy upon and sale of your interest in any real estate as exists at the date of the levy
  • Foreclosure or initiation of suit to collect
  • Garnishment of wages, if judgment therefore had been entered
  • Issuance of an alias tax warrant for collection by marshal or constable
  • Levy against and seizure of any funds on deposit in any bank in this state in accordance with Section 52-367A
  • Levy on any of your taxable goods or chattels, property, and/or assets, and disposal and sale of them in the manner provided in the case of executions
