38 Parcels Sell At Delinquent Tax Sale For Over $1 Million

Four Properties, 2 In Crothersville, Fail To Sell

When the delinquent property tax sale list was first advertised in September there were 144 parcels with back taxes owed. By the time Friday’s tax sale began at the courthouse, that list had been pared down to 41 after property owners paid taxes owed prior to the sale.
Those 41 parcels owed a total of $116,584.20; successful bidders paid $1,053,184.88.
“The county is only interested in the taxes owed,” said county auditor Kathy Hohenstreiter. “The amount paid over the taxes owed will go into a surplus tax sale fund.”
She explained that those properties sold on Friday can be redeemed by their owners by paying the taxes plus 10% for 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.
Four of the 41 parcels did not sell at Friday morning’s tax sale; two of them in Crothersville,
One is one at 614 E. Bard Street that has been the focus of a cleanup effort by the Town of Crothersville. The property, owned by Paul & Penny Gay had $3,463.77 in taxes owed and failed to get that minimum bid.
A second parcel, a small parking lot on the southwest corner of Howard and Kovener Streets, owned by Grover Stacey also failed to gain the minimum $929.03 minimum bid.
Two other parcels failed to receive the minimum bid: 6668 N. Glendenning St in Freetown owned by Gary W. & Cheryl P. Greathouse failed to get the minimum $2,081.90 bid and the Unicell property on West Spring Street in Brownstown failed to get the minimum $156,466.52 bid for back taxes owed on the 32.7 acres site.
Hohenstreiter said that those properties would be offered for sale during a Commissioners’ Certificate Sale sometime in April 2018. At that sale the minimum bid per parcel is $200.

Fall Property Taxes Due Nov. 13

The Jackson County Treasurer, Roger D. Hurt, reminds taxpayers that the second installment of property tax billings are due Monday, Nov. 13.
“This is slightly later this fall as the Nov. 11 Veterans Day is observed by the county on Friday Nov. 10,” said Hurt. “This is the usual deadline for paying property taxes but since the courthouse is closed that day the deadline is extended to Monday, Nov. 13.
Residents can pay their taxes in one of four methods:
•Payment in person at the Treasurer’s Office in the courthouse in Brownstown from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
But if you want to avoid the sometimes lengthy lines you can opt for one of the following methods, said Hurt.
•Payment by mail delivery with check and payment coupon. Payment is considered on time when postmarked by Nov. 13.
•Payment at The Peoples Bank locations in Brownstown, Crothersville and Seymour or The State Bank Of Medora.
This option for payment must include the payment coupon to be presented at the Bank for proper crediting of the taxpayer’s payment. Payments made at banks must be made before the close of their business on Nov. 13.
•Payment with credit/debit cards on-line at or the County Web site;
•Payment with credit /debit cards using the automated system. Toll Free 1-888-809-5849.
Both credit/debit options will incur a convenience fee charge, Hurt noted.
•A secure drop box is located at the Sugar Street entrance of courthouse. Payment coupons with your check should be placed here. No cahs payments are accepted in the drop box. Payment is considered on time if received in the drop box by midnight on the deadline date.
If anyone is ever in doubt of the amount that they owe, how to make a payment, where a payment can be processed or questions on the billing schedule, call us at the Jackson County Treasurer’s Office at 812-358-6125 or 812-358-6126 or email questions to
Hurt said that residents with questions about assessments or reassessments should contact the Assessor’s Office at 812-358-6112;
Questions about exemptions or tax rates are handled by the Auditor’s Office at 812-358-6161.

Thoughts On November

by Curt Kovener

We have begun the month of “no”: no flowers, no fruits, no vegetables, no warm sun…November.
Here are some others’ thoughts on the penultiment month of the year.
“Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn.” ~Elizabeth Lawrence
“Dull November brings the blast, then the leaves are whirling fast.” ~Sara Coleridge
“November comes And November goes,
With the last red berries And the first white snows.
With night coming early, And dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket And frost by the gate.
The fires burn And the kettles sing,
And earth sinks to rest Until next spring.”
~ Elizabeth Coatsworth
“I like spring, but it is too young. I like summer, but it is too proud. So I like best of all autumn, because its tone is mellower, its colours are richer, and it is tinged with a little sorrow. Its golden richness speaks not of the innocence of spring, nor the power of summer, but of the mellowness and kindly wisdom of approaching age. It knows the limitations of life and its content.” ~Lin Yutang
“Autumn is the eternal corrective. It is ripeness and color and a time of maturity; but it is also breadth, and depth,
and distance. What man can stand with autumn on a hilltop and fail to see the span of his world and the meaning of the rolling hills that reach to the far horizon?” ~ Hal Borland
“Heap high the farmer’s wintry hoard!
Heap high the golden corn!
No richer gift has Autumn poured
From out her lavish horn!”
~ John Greenleaf Whittier
“Autumn is marching on: even the scarecrows are wearing dead leaves.” ~ Otsuyu Nakagawa
“Splitting dry kindling on a damp November day are like wind-chimes tinkling.” ~Michael P. Garofalo
“The wind that makes music in November corn is in a hurry. The stalks hum, the loose husks whisk skyward in half-playing swirls, and the wind hurries on…
A tree tries to argue, bare limbs waving, but there is no detaining the wind.”
~ Aldo Leopold
“Two sounds of autumn are unmistakable, the hurrying rustle of crisp leaves blown along the street or road by a gusty wind, and the gabble of a flock of migrating geese.
Both are warnings of chill days ahead, fireside and topcoat weather.” ~ Hal Borland
