POMEROY, Ohio – Meigs County Prosecuting Attorney James K. Stanley reminds Meigs County real estate owners who currently owe delinquent property taxes to contact the Meigs County Treasurer’s Office to arrange for payment of those taxes. While the Meigs County Treasurer’s Office collected $863,548.12 in delinquent real estate and mobile home taxes for tax year 2017, additional property taxes remain delinquent.

Property owners who do not pay their property taxes subject themselves to a delinquent tax foreclosure. The Meigs County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office remains committed to assisting the Meigs County Treasurer’s Office in collecting delinquent property taxes. The Meigs County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office recently filed tax foreclosure lawsuits on behalf of the Meigs County Treasurer’s Office against a number of property owners who owed delinquent property taxes but did not pay those taxes when due earlier this year. Final warning letters will be issued to additional property owners owing delinquent taxes in the coming weeks. Those wishing to avoid receiving a final warning letter and ultimately a delinquent tax foreclosure should contact the Meigs County Treasurer’s Office immediately to remedy the delinquency.
