This year’s top 10 tax delinquents

“Unfortunately,” says Ingham County Treasurer Eric Schertzing, the number of foreclosures isn’t improving in greater Lansing. “The level of foreclosure activity looks to stay quite elevated for at least the third year running.”

Schertzing’s office prepared this year’s list of the top 10 property tax delinquents in Ingham County, which

reflects taxes owed from 2011. The top 10 owe a total of $636,755.12, which represents 14 percent of the debt owed to the county for 2011 and prior property taxes. The full list is inserted in this issue.

The number of parcels in this year’s full list increased slightly — by 1.3 percent — from 2012, from 1,417 to 1,436, according to the Treasurer’s Office.

Property owners have until March 31 to pay taxes owed from 2011.
