This time of year can be especially scary or stressful for those Texas homeowners who still have outstanding property tax bills. In July, most counties turn their delinquent bills over to attorneys for collection, and this can lead to lawsuits and even foreclosure. What the Home Tax Solutions team wants you to know is – even if you’re getting letters from lawyers – there’s still time to pay your property tax bill and avoid foreclosure, and we can help you!
Why am I Getting Intimidating Letters from Law Offices?
As of July 1, the majority of counties in the state of Texas will transfer delinquent property tax accounts to collection attorneys. Most counties will use the law firms of Linebarger, Goggan, Blair & Sampson, LLP, Perdue, Brandon, Fielder, Collins & Mott, LLP and Mccreary Veselka Bragg & Allen PC. If you are getting letters from these law offices or others, a few things have likely happened. First, your already rapidly rising property tax bill has probably received an additional 15% to 20% penalty. That means a payment of an additional 36% to 41% on top of your already steep property tax bill. Second, the attorneys will likely file a lawsuit if you fail to pay your delinquent property taxes within a set period of time. Finally, legal notices often mean that failure to pay your delinquent property tax bill can result in foreclosure and sale of your home to repay the bill.
Can a Property Tax Loan Prevent Foreclosure?
It can, and when the lawyers at Linebarger, Goggan, Blair & Sampson, LLP and Perdue, Brandon, Fielder, Collins & Mott, LLP and Mccreary Veselka Bragg & Allen PC or any other firm, get involved, foreclosure is likely a next step for the state. We know that the letters from legal offices and notices of foreclosure proceedings can be as confusing as they are frustrating and frightening, but the best thing you can do to prevent foreclosure and stay in your home is pay the delinquent property tax bill as well as your fees and penalties as soon as possible. That’s where Home Tax Solutions can help!
How Fast Can a Property Tax Loan from Home Tax Solutions Pay Off My Property Taxes?
We do our utmost to complete the entire property tax loan process from start to finish in just one to two business days from your application, especially at this time of year when every day counts! After we close your loan plan, there are some regulations that determine how soon we can pay your bill. For example, homestead properties in the state of Texas require a three-day holding period after loan closing before the bill can be paid, so that process could be completed in four to five business days total from your initial application.
