Tax Lien Reports and Letters

 

The Tax Lien by Municipality Report prompts the user to select a municipality, enter a minimum “prior-year” outstanding balance amount for reporting purposes, and enter the proposed Date of the Tax Sale for interest calculations. Note that the date entered will almost always be a future date and will cause the system to calculate interest charges on the prior year’s outstanding balance up through that date:

The Tax Lien Report provides the following information:

Ø          Total Amount that goes to Tax Sale (i.e. the property owner does NOT pay prior to the actual Tax Sale), which includes the following amounts from this report:

 Principal from Prior Year

 Misc Charges from Prior Year

 Interest from Prior Year – unpaid interest from the prior year only.

 Interest on Prior Year Principal – interest charges calculated from the last

date the customer was charged in the prior year through the date of the

Tax Sale.

The WinBill™ system can also generate a Tax Lien Letter to be sent to the property owners prior to the date of the tax sale to allow them time to pay off any outstanding charges:
