Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector Mike Sullivan is working to reclaim lost revenues for Harris County residents. Thousands of properties sit vacant throughout the county, creating unsafe conditions and lowering property values. Many property owners are delinquent, and for months they fail to meet their tax obligations.
“Delinquent property taxes unfairly burden the taxpayers of Harris County, and we need to recover every dollar possible,” said Mr. Sullivan. “It is success stories, like these, that will help strengthen Harris County and provide the greatest benefit to our community and residents.”
Each month the county holds public auctions. The goal is to put neglected properties into the hands of new owners.
For the month of June 2015, a total of 419 properties were posted for sale. Sullivan successfully reclaimed $2,701,038.01 the citizens of Harris County.
