Steuben County: Property tax auction set for July 15

The annual Steuben County Delinquent Real Property Tax Auction is slated for 10 a.m. Friday at the Haverling High School Auditorium. The auction is expected to consist of approximately 73 parcels, county Commissioner of Finance Patrick Donnelly told the county Legislature’s Finance Committee Tuesday. Steuben officials maintain the purpose of the county auction is to recover back taxes and put the properties back on the tax rolls and not to seize property. The county allows owners an installment option for payment of back taxes, if the owner has not defaulted on a payment plan in the past 36 months.
