Auction pressures property owners to pay overdue taxes

The overdue taxes owed on just three properties in Franklin could help pay for most of the annual paving and crack-sealing work the city wants to do.

That’s why the county will have a tax sale again this year, to try to collect about $1.9 million in past-due taxes owed to local governments.

Properties in the tax sale this year include small pieces of land, homes, businesses and vacant lots in subdivisions. For example, a person owes $150 in overdue taxes for a driveway to a home in Nineveh. A homeowner is past due $5,000 for a home in the Carefree subdivision in the Center Grove area. About $20,000 is owed by a company for part of a business complex at State Road 135 and State Road 252 in Trafalgar.
