The Delinquent Tax Payment Plan offers valuable assistance to taxpayers who have fallen behind on the payment of real estate taxes. The program was established in 1987 and has successfully provided assistance to thousands of property owners in Summit County.
The benefit of the Delinquent Tax Payment Plan is it allows residential taxpayers, mobile home owners and business owners to keep their property without the worry of foreclosure, providing they meet the required payment schedule. In addition, our schools benefit from tax revenues otherwise not being collected.
HOW THE DELINQUENT TAX PROGRAM WORKS FOR YOU
Under the program, you will establish a monthly payment plan to fit your needs. After you have committed to the payment plan, all delinquent balances will become frozen in a special payment account; that is, no further interest will be assessed against your delinquent balance.
To be eligible for the program, you must be delinquent on the payment of your real estate taxes. This means you have missed a first and/or second half payment.
Please note that the program also requires commitment to the following:
- Your delinquent balance will be paid off in monthly installments
- Additional interest will be abated when program is completed
- You MUST pay current taxes when they become due
PAYMENT PLANS AVAILABLE
For further information, please contact the Delinquent Tax Department at 330-643-2600. A Tax Collector will establish your payment plan based on the amount of the delinquency and the financial ability to pay.
