My personal property tax bill reads “DELINQUENT TAXES,” what does this mean?
This message indicates that taxes on personal property, whether a vehicle, boat, motor home, etc., in your name or that you co-own(ed) is currently delinquent or outstanding. This message and the amount due are printed on all personal property tax bills associated with the owner or owners. The personal property tax bill will read XX – XX after Delinquent Taxes stating the year or years in which back taxes are owned. For example, taxes owed in 2010 - 2012 are shown as “Delinquent Taxes 10 - 12”.
