A total of 57 properties throughout the county received bids totaling $759,818.49 at the June 29 sale. The properties were in arrears for taxes, penalties, and interest totaling $421,732.41, leaving the county with a net profit of $277,559.67 minus staff, title search and other costs incurred by the county’s Real Property Tax Services office.
Chenango County Second Deputy Treasurer Barbara Strier reported there were still eight properties that had not received bids and the end total could change due to bid forfeitures. “We still had better results (than previous years),” she reported.
