Tax Claim Bureau Will Write Off Leans on Abandoned Mobile Homes
Blair County officials will draft a policy to allow its Tax Claim Bureau to strike real estate taxes on mobile homes claimed by land owners through the abandonment process.
State officials passed ACT 156 in 2012. It allows mobile home parks and property owners to legally take possession of abandoned and partially destroyed house trailers in an effort to control blight. Blair County solicitor Nathan Karn says once the landlord secures an abandonment order from a judge all property tax liens are forfeited.
So far, only one landlord has made a claim – but that forced officials to address how to process and track the requests. Commissioner Terry Tomassetti called the new law a reasonable approach because its hard collect back taxes on property that nobody wants anymore.
