Supervisors Take Action On Uncollected Taxes

In order to clear several cases of unresolvable delinquent taxes from the books in the Treasurer’s Office, the Kearney County Board of Supervisors was asked to consider a resolution to strike uncollected personal property tax from the 2020 Annual Delinquent Tax List.

County Treasurer Jody Payne explained that most uncollected taxes on the list given to the board have been through bankruptcy and the time when the County could collect is passed. The remaining properties are noncollectable in other ways. 

The resolution striking uncollected personal property tax from the 2020 annual delinquent tax list was approved. A second resolution was also adopted to direct the County Treasurer to purchase any real estate offered at Public Tax Sale for years 2018 and prior.
