GENESEO — The Livingston County Board of Supervisors approved postponing the enforcement of unpaid 2018 property tax liens until 2021.


This Board action was taken in response to Governor Cuomo’s Executive Order 202.8 and an Administrative Order issued by Chief Administrative Judge Lawrence K. Marks. Both Orders specifically prohibit New York State counties from engaging in any legal activity related to the foreclosure of properties under Real Property Tax Law Article 11.


Because these Orders have drastically impacted the County’s tax foreclosure process with respect to unpaid 2018 Town and County taxes, a new date of redemption and a new auction date for the 2018 tax year have been established.


The newly established last day to redeem property under the Article 11 tax foreclosure process will be the close of County business on June 15, 2021. The auction date for properties the County acquires through the tax foreclosures process relative to the unpaid 2018 Town and County taxes will be July 22, 2021 at 6 p.m..
