Filing Chapter 13 Bankruptcy to Stop Property Tax Foreclosure
Many people fall behind on property tax payments. After these payments fall three years behind, the County where the home is located is required by State law to initiate foreclosure proceedings. Fortunately, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy can be filed to immediately stop the pending property tax foreclosure and provide an affordable payment plan to correct the past due property taxes. The Chapter 13 Bankruptcy must be filed before the County completes the foreclosure sale. It is important not to wait until the last minute to take action. We are able to file emergency Chapter 13 Bankruptcy cases, even the same day if necessary, however, we much prefer to have time to prepare the documents and provide you with information on the process. If you are facing property tax foreclosure on your home, please contact Bishop Law Offices for a free consultation.
