Extension from Foreclosure

Foreclosure is a tragedy. At the County Treasurer’s Office we do not like to foreclose on people’s property. We work tirelessly to prevent a tax foreclosure whenever possible. When it is absolutely necessary, however, your county treasurer must foreclose on the property by law.

Unpaid delinquent property taxes can lead to foreclosure and loss of your property after three years. As part of the foreclosure judgment, you can redeem your property by paying the 2019 and prior years taxes by March 31st, 2022. If you plan on paying your taxes by March 31st, 2022, you do not need to attend either of the hearings.

The County Treasurer has a hardship extension policy and application designed to delay foreclosure deadlines by one year for owners who are actively working to catch up on their delinquent property taxes and save their property.

If an extension is granted, it’s important to keep in mind that that is does not abolish an obligation to pay property taxes. It only extends time to pay them. Interest and other fees established by the Property Tax Law (Public Act 206 of 1893 as amended) will still be added to the amount you owe until that amount is paid in full. Also, if the successive tax year is owed, both years will have to be paid to avoid tax foreclosure in the next year.

Applications are being taken and reviewed for properties that are in forfeiture and will be foreclosed upon (delinquent for two years) on January 26th, 2022 at the Tuscola County Treasurer’s Office. (125 W. Lincoln St.; Caro, MI 48723) It will be a first come first serve bases (appointment are not necessary), check in starts at 8am.

*** Please note that if you had an extension last year, you MAY NOT be eligible for an additional one this year.
