Sullivan County Treasurer Nancy Buck announces that the redemption date for tax-foreclosed properties has been extended to SEPTEMBER 3, 2021
Monticello, NY – Local property owners facing tax foreclosure now have until September 3, 2021 to redeem their properties.
“In a normal year, the redemption deadline would be January 31,” explained Sullivan County Treasurer Nancy Buck, whose office collects County taxes. “The State extended that to May 1 this year, and then again to August 31, so in collaboration with our County Legislature, I agreed to extend the foreclosure redemption deadline to September 3 of this year.”
Payment of taxes due can be made by check or money order via:
- Mail – payable to the Sullivan County Treasurer, PO Box 5012, Monticello, NY 12701
- Secure drop box at the entrance to the Sullivan County Government Center - 100 North Street in Monticello, or
- In person at the Treasurer’s Office on the first floor of the Government Center – walk-ins welcome, but appointments preferred (845-807-0200)
“I encourage everyone who is dealing with the foreclosure process to take advantage of this unusual opportunity,” Buck said. “We’re never eager to foreclose on someone’s property, so I’m grateful that this chance is available to people who may have gotten hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
