Hidalgo County’s delinquent tax collection law firm, Perdue, Brandon, Fielder, Collins & Mott L.L.P., reported an increase of nearly $134,000 in delinquent tax collections. From July 1 – Dec. 31, 2014 delinquent tax collections tallied $6,063,494 versus $5,929,892 for the same time frame in 2013.

“This increase is significant for Hidalgo County, because the delinquent tax collections rose despite a drop in the total delinquent levy for these first six months of the 2014-2015 fiscal year,” said Hiram A. Gutierrez, a partner with the firm. “The delinquent levy dropped $1,423,220, however delinquent tax collections increased by $133,602.”

Gutierrez said another factor in the rising delinquent tax collections was the firm’s successful Tax Sale Program. Since July 1, 2014, tax sales and the Public Sheriff’s Tax Resale Auction resulted in 121 properties being sold, generating $366,452 for Hidalgo County.

The next Public Sheriff’s Tax Resale Auction is scheduled for Tues., April 7 at 10:30 a.m. across the street from the Hidalgo County Courthouse at the south side under the covered space of the County Clerk Records Management Facility (previously known as Robert's Chevrolet building) with a physical address of 317 North Closner, in Edinburg.
