Monticello, NY – In consultation with Sullivan County Treasurer Nancy Buck, County Manager Josh Potosek has extended the repurchase period for tax-foreclosed properties to August 31, 2020 at 5 p.m.
“We had already extended the repurchasing deadline from April 20 to June 20, but the fiscal and employment consequences of COVID-19 continue to deeply impact our residents,” Potosek explained. “We want to give our property owners every chance we can to reclaim their land, so I issued an Executive Order pushing the repurchase deadline back to August 31.”
“Sullivan County has long allowed landowners the opportunity to repurchase their tax-foreclosed parcels, as we don’t like to see anyone lose their homes and properties,” affirmed Buck. “Auctioning off foreclosed properties is our last resort to ensure taxes are paid. If we can avoid that scenario, it’s worth a try.”
