25 Parcels Sell At Jackson County Delinquent Tax Sale For Over $720,000

8 Properties Don’t Sell; 3 In Crothersville

When the Jackson County delinquent property tax sale list was first advertised in September there were 129 parcels with back taxes owed. By the time last Monday’s tax sale began, that list had been pared down to 33 after property owners paid taxes owed prior to the sale.
Those 33 parcels owed a total of $311,664.28. Eight properties failed to obtain the minimum bid of taxes owed and three of those properties are in Crothersville.
Jackson County Auditor Kathy Hohenstreiter said she would be recommending to the county commissioners that they schedule a commissioners’ certificate sale for some time in March 2019. She said that a certificate sale will allow those parcels that did not receive the minimum bid of taxes owed to be auctioned for a minimum bid of $200.
The eight parcels that did not sell and the amount owed included:
•Unicell Paper Mills, 1220 W. Spring St., Brownstown; $195,341.08.
•Wanda F. Gilley, 621 Noble St., Seymour; $9,990.62.
•John Dale & Loretta Patterson, 828 Phillips Lane, Seymour; $15,894.84.
•Glenda Redleaf & Douglas Joseph, 3315 N. Sugar St., Norman; $4,113.82.
•Gary W. & Cheryl P Greathouse, 6668 Glendenning St., Freetown; $3,081.36.
•Louis B. & Leah Rusch, 302 W. Walnut St., Crothersville; $1,578.96.
•Paul & Penny Gay, 614 E. Bard St., Crothersville; $4,393.36.
•Grover Stacey, 208 E. Dixon St., Crothersville; $2,121.02.
There were nine successful bidders who paid a total of $720,261.83 for 25 parcels.
“The county is only interested in the taxes owed,” said county Treasurer Roger Hurt. “The amount paid over the taxes owed will go into a surplus tax sale fund.”
Hohenstreiter explained that those properties sold at the tax sale can be redeemed by their owners by paying the taxes plus 10% for up to the next six months; after that the interest increases to 15%. Upon redemption, the surplus paid by the successful bidder will be returned to that bidder.
