  • Know the tax system and don’t get caught up with a third party tax purchaser

    Kentucky law allows an individual or a company, called “a third party tax purchaser” to pay a homeowner’s delinquent taxes and in exchange they get the right to hold the debt, plus 12 percent interest, plus administrative fees, plus attorney’s fees for up to 11 years as a first lien on a home. And, if the amounts due are not paid, the third party tax purchaser can foreclose on the home.

  • Look a little closer at tax bills

    Citizens should pay close attention to their tax bills this year, as those in escrow will most likely be responsible for forwarding them on to their mortgage companies.
    Sheriff Buddy Stump said the practice isn’t new or unique to Spencer County, but said fewer mortgage companies are requesting their clients’ bills because of technological advances in the process.
    Stump said even under previous administrations no tax bills were forwarded on to mortgage companies without the company requesting them.
