Your 2018 Real Estate Taxes were due on March 31 of last year. If you still haven’t paid your bill, it became delinquent on January 1. That means your account has been hit with penalties and interest, and the City can place a lien on your property. Eventually, you could lose your property to a Sheriff Sale.
