This email is a formal request for a copy of your county’s “excess funds list,” which I believe is maintained by your department. In case of any confusion, by “excess funds” I mean monies collected when a property is sold at tax sale which are over and above the amount of property taxes/penalties and interest owed. I am only looking for uncollected excess funds on unredeemed properties.
The information I would like is the date of the tax sale, name of owner at the time of the tax sale, the tax identification number (sometimes called “Parcel Number” or “Parcel Identifier” or “Folio Number”), either the property address or owner’s mailing address, and the amount of surplus funds due the owner. If you have some portion of the above information available I am interested in what you do have available.
If you have these records in electronic format such as PDF, Excel or CSV files, I’d prefer the information that way. Otherwise, please let me know how much a hard copy of your list will be, and where and to whom to mail payment for a hard copy
If you do not maintain a list of excess funds, any advice on how I could collect that information from existing files you have would be very much appreciated!
If I have reached the wrong department, I would very much appreciate this email being forwarded to the correct department, with a carbon copy sent to me.
If there is anything I can do to aid or expedite the process, please let me know, as I’m eager to do whatever I can to make your job easier.
