Unredeemed 2006 Taxes (2007 Tax Sale)
More property tax info:
A couple of weeks ago the Madison County Chancery Clerk published a list of Unredeemed 2006 Taxes in the Madison County Herald. These parcels were sold at the 2007 Tax Sale and are still unredeemed, i.e., the 2006 taxes have not been paid by the owner.
Unredeemed parcels for 2006 taxes (2007 tax sale) must be redeemed by August 27,2009, or a tax sale/lien title may be issued to the person who bought the property at the tax sale in August 2007. Click here to go to the Madison County web site where listings can be downloaded
If you have questions, or need to pay 2006 taxes, please contact Madison County Deputy Chancery Clerk Kamesha Mumford
, (601) 855-5522.
Additional information on land records, court filings, etc., may be seen at the Madison County Chancery Clerk web site.
|2009 TAX SALE:
The Tax Collector must advertise and hold a tax sale once a year for any unpaid taxes on real estate or any special assessments. Traditionally, the tax sale in Madison County is held on the last Monday of August each year, August 31, 2009. A comma separated variable (CSV) file can be downloaded at the Tax Collectors web site
Also, I've converted the csv parcel listing to an Excel spreadsheet (xls) file format which can be download by clicking here. This file can be searched by owner name, subdivision name, etc.
In addition to individuals and businesses, there are some subdivisions with unpaid taxes on green space, etc. So, please check carefully and avoid extra fees, interest, etc. Remember that tax notices are sent to the owner as of Jan 1, 2008; so, it someone bought a property in 2008 the tax bills may have been mailed and forwarded to the previous owner.

For purposes of assessment for ad valorem taxes, taxable property is divided
into five (5) classes and is assessed at a percentage of its true value as
Single-family owner-occupied, residential real
TAX RATE =10%
All other real property, except real property in
Class I or Class IV
TAX RATE =15%
Personal property, except motor vehicles and Class
TAX RATE =15%
Public service property assessed by the state or
county except railroad and airline property
TAX RATE =30%
TAX RATE =30%
In arriving at the true value of real property, the appraised value is to be
made according to current use of property regardless of location. Laws provide
a special mode of valuation and assessment for public service and railroad
property not situated wholly in one county. All such property is assessed in
proportion to its value according to its class, and no county or tax authority,
is denied the right to levy county or other taxes upon such assessment as in
other cases of property situated and assessed in the county. For the assessment
of motor vehicles, laws provide a special mode of valuation, fixing the taxable
year, date of tax lien, and method and date of assessing and collecting taxes.
(A mill is also one-thousandth of a dollar.) To calculate the property tax, the authority
will multiply the assessed value of the property by the mill rate and then
divide by 1,000. For example, a property with an assessed value of US$ 500,000
located in a municipality with a mill rate of 20 mills would have a property
tax bill of US$ 10,000.00 per year.
"mill" represents one dollar of tax on every thousand dollars of
taxable property value.
Actually, the product
is the tax on each dollar of taxable value. To determine the tax rate on
every $1,000 of taxable value, multiply by 1,000 or just move the decimal point
to the right three spaces.
