The City of Taunton secures its right to unpaid property taxes through a tax lien process. The City maintains a list of all Tax Title properties available for review in the Treasurer's Office. This list is constantly changing either reflecting payments or property owners and/or banks or when the City becomes the owner of the properties through the Land Court foreclosure process. It is advisable for the property owner to work with the Treasurer's Office prior to foreclosure as once the City becomes the owner of the property, the only options left to property owners is to vacate the judgment or purchase the property at a public auction.
Any questions regarding Tax Title should be directed to the Treasurer Collector's Office at 508-821-1057.
