Universal Citation: IN Code § 6-1.1-24-1.2 (2018)
IC 6-1.1-24-1.2 Removal of property from delinquency list; arrangement for payment of delinquent taxes

     Sec. 1.2. (a) Except as provided in subsection (c), a tract or an item of real property may not be removed from the list certified under section 1 or 1.5 of this chapter before the tax sale unless all:

(1) delinquent taxes and special assessments due before the date the list on which the property appears was certified under section 1 or 1.5 of this chapter; and

(2) penalties due on the delinquency, interest, and costs directly attributable to the tax sale;

have been paid in full.

     (b) A county treasurer may accept partial payments of delinquent property taxes, assessments, penalties, interest, or costs under subsection (a) after the list of real property is certified under section 1 or 1.5 of this chapter. However, a partial payment does not remove a tract or an item from the list certified under section 1 or 1.5 of this chapter unless the taxpayer complies with subsection (a) or (c) before the date of the tax sale.

     (c) A county auditor shall remove a tract or an item of real property from the list certified under section 1 or 1.5 of this chapter before the tax sale if the county treasurer and the taxpayer agree to a mutually satisfactory arrangement for the payment of the delinquent taxes.

     (d) The county auditor shall remove the tract or item from the list certified under section 1 or 1.5 of this chapter if:

(1) the arrangement described in subsection (c):

(A) is in writing;

(B) is signed by the taxpayer; and

(C) requires the taxpayer to pay the delinquent taxes in full not later than the last business day before July 1 of the year after the date the agreement is signed; and

(2) the county treasurer has provided a copy of the written agreement to the county auditor.

     (e) If the taxpayer fails to make a payment under the arrangement described in subsection (c):

(1) the arrangement is void; and

(2) the county auditor shall immediately place the tract or item of real property on the list of real property eligible for sale at a tax sale.

     (f) If a taxpayer fails to make a payment under an arrangement entered into under subsection (c), the county treasurer and the taxpayer may enter into a subsequent arrangement and avoid the penalties under subsection (e).
