I Your taxfs Or Ypu Could Lose the T-V Personal Tax Delinquency Mas New Teeth Algona' about Dec. 1 there cotild be a 'few 1 television set4, home freezers .and air conditioning units for sale at the Kossuth county courthouse. , That ls,-ttriey could if people'do not pay their personal property taxes.' • •; '' •"' • •••• -•-• ; •; ', However) the office of Rosella Voigt, county treasurer, has been trying toMet folks know if they are delinquent in their personal property taxes by sending out postcards. The personal property tax delinquency should not be confused with the delinquent real estate tax list, but both real estate and personal are being published ; in the Algona Upper Des Moines today. A courthouse full of television sets is possible under a law passed by the last legislature. The law makes it mandatory tor the county treasurers to issue distress warrants tot collection' pf ,cuf rent delinquent personal proper* ty taxes. . ' ' . A distress warrant empowers the sheriff or constable to, coh»j fiscate any; piece of taxable per*/ sonal property and sell . it td satisfy the '. btiginal tax, penalty? property;* ' - / This Cduld Happertl '.•'. ,', .This means you might ble'sit^ ting at • home with the kicldieS comfortably watdhing a Sahta Claus' parade when the; officers would .appear, unplug ybUr''^St and haul it out to a.Waiting :lruck.' .•• ' ' • ,*• -' k ''' v "J' Or they might take one of any number of other taxable perstfn* ;al items. . .' '.. ' ; :v In the' past the personal '-prof perty delinquencies piled up-VtM*', cause there was no penalty in tEe, law to force payment. ':*'* Many delinquencies were n8t discovered until the taxpayer tried to sell his real estate— then he was notified of a lien against his property. Others continued to pile up until the taxpayer died. Then the taxes- were collected from his estate. The old law made issuance ot distress warrants optional with the treasurer — but, politics as it is, few treasurers in Iowa, if any, ever issued them. Now they have no choice. The number of delinquent taxpayers probably will not run as high at it has in the past few years — but even if it drops there will be a lot of personal property sold to satisfy the tax. Sums Not Very Large Most personal. property taxes are but a drop in the bucket com- pared'with real estate taxes. Personal taxes become sizable, usually, when they apply to businesses AU30NA, IOWA, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 1955 VOL. 92 - NO. 47, with large inventories. This new law does not apply to properties on which there are delinquent real estate taxes, as these properties are "sold" at delinquent tax sales the first Mon« day in December as has been the law for many years. The law says p , "Unless such delinquent personal property taxes are paid within. 10 days of the date of final publication of the notice, a distress warrant will be issued for the collection thereof." That's when the sheriff walks away with your television set. When he knocks on the door, you can still give him a check to pay the tax, but by this time the bill includes not only the tax 1 , penalty and interest, but also your share of the cost of publication and the cost of serving the warrant.
