My commercial property tax's is due on
8-26-09 in they put in the newspaper they
will start the sale on the last of this
The date the 2008 taxes were due was 2/1/2009 unless your county or municipality allows for payments in installments. If payments in installments are accepted, the the payments are due as follows: one-half by 2/1, one fourth by 5/1, and the final fourth due by July 1.
How does this work if you don't pay 2008
commercial property tax's? Can they really
sale it. I thought they had 3 years before
they can sale or auction your property tax's.
Mississippi Code section 27-41-1 states that if the taxes are not paid by August 1, then the property is to be sold by the last Monday of August. This year, the last Monday in August is August 31. That's why the paper listed it for sale 8/31. August 26 is probably the last day the assessor may be able to take your payment to avoid the sale. So no, not only is the tax collector not required to wait 3 years, under the statute the sale must be done by the end of August.
"Can you also get a discount on your commercial property tax if your getting disability?"
Probably not. While states sometimes provide tax breaks for disabled persons on the property taxes for their homes, they don't typically do so for commerical property. If you own commericial property, you are generallly presumed to be able to pay those taxes. If you can't, you likely need to sell the property. Consult a local tax attorney or bankruptcy attorney promptly to see if there is anything you can do now to avoid the sale.
