(Commonly asked questions and answers)
Our tax year is January 1 to December 31. Please consult your tax bill for due date. When a payment is 8 – 12 months past due, a lien is filed at the Somerset County Registry of Deeds. Lien fees and certified mail fees are then added to the amount due. It will foreclose 18 months after the lien date.
