Ninety-five delinquent property tax accounts were resolved this fiscal year, bringing in more than $1.3 million during the real property tax sale process, according to the Maui County Department of Finance.
One property was auctioned at the sale Tuesday at the Kihei Community Center.
“Foreclosing these properties is always the county’s last option,” said Deputy Finance Director May-Anne Alibin. “Although this year’s tax sale auctioned only one property, the tax sale process has been another great success because the county was able to bring these delinquent accounts current, and, at the same time, taxpayers are able to remain in their homes or keep their properties.”
Properties that have been delinquent for three or more years and have received a final notice of tax sale were placed on the tax sale list. Properties were removed from the list if all taxes, penalties, interest and costs had been paid in full before the date of the sale.
