Below are the years of Delinquent Tax Lists that are available. Years that have a line through them are unavailable.
Tax Listings were required to be published weekly for two or three weeks; only one of each year's publications is presented here. Sometimes the lists will differ from one publication to another within a given year. The presence of names on these lists only means that the person has not yet paid their taxes for the year, it doesn't necessarily mean that they are unable to pay. In some cases, names are repeated from one year to the next - these are likely people who routinely make their payments in the following calendar year as opposed to the year in which the taxes are levied.
If you find anyone in these listings who is still living, please do not ask for removal of their names; property records are Public Information, and they have already been made available to the public in widely-published newspapers. Removal of names on these pages will destroy the historical integrity of the originally-published listing, no matter how recent.
Note: These listings are not always in alphabetical order within townships; use your browser's Find function to search the page.
